Re: Windows 11

Two things. First I got 2 copies of this post but one had no text. They came at the same time. Very strange.
As for W11, my worry is not the possibility of trouble with W11 and the coding tools used buy Dave. So far it seems there is o problem.

My worry is that when W10 support ends I will be out of luck since I cannot switch to W11 under the 3rd gen processor in this machine. Everything I have is running well and do not wat to be forced to buy a new machine. If the current information that you will need an 8th gen processor to run W11 is true it is a worry. On the other hand I would not be surprised if things force me to buy new machines. At least it is 4 years away you say.

DXLAB and my other ham apps have been running without any issue unique to Windows 11.

BUT your mileage may vary! And Windows 11 could still change before release.

The current guess for Windows 11 general availability is "October 2021".

If you are concerned/upset/excited about W11, go here and click "Download latest
stable release" and run it. That will tell you if your system meets
*today's* list of W11 requirements.

SO FAR, my particular CPU is "not supported" (only non-green box on
the tool). I expect that this will change before (or even after) W11
ships and if it *doesn't*, I am likely to have replaced the system by
the time of W10's "retirement" anyway given that it's approaching 4
years old.

IOW, I don't spend a lot of time thinking about it. Besides, 50 MHz
is still quite open, so my time is better spent adding grids.
