However, in June 2021, Microsoft stunned the computing industry by announcing the imminent release of Windows 11 and with it, Microsoft Business users began looking forward to the modernisation of their computing software.

Windows 11 promises massive improvements on security, operating functionality, and a more aesthetically pleasing user format. As if that wasn’t enough, Microsoft also revealed that many existing PCs are entitled to a FREE Windows 11 upgrade.

We can finally say goodbye to Windows 10

However, before companies worldwide bid adieu to the much-maligned Windows 10, users must be aware of some essential details.

However, many users wishing to be amongst the first to experience the smooth functionality of Windows 11, may need to buy a new computer (or computers, or manually upgrade from out with windows update via disk). This is because the Windows upgrade won’t happen until early next year. The new operating system is expected to have a long rollout and prioritise new machines, working their way along the line to older PCs.
