What enterprise needs to know about Windows 11
So much for that promise.
You know, the one Microsoft made six years ago when it told customer that Windows 10 was “the last version of Windows” they’d see.
Instead, Windows 10 will end — also as promised by Microsoft, hence our confusion over the contradictory claims — in late 2025, its 10-year lifecycle the same as its OS antecedents, replaced by the next-in-line numeral and numeric label. Hail Windows 11.
Windows is dead. Long live Windows. Or put another way, same as it ever was.
Well, not quite. Although details remain somewhat sketchy, Windows 11 won’t be an exact copy of Windows 10, renamed. Or renumbered.
We’ve collected some of the salient points about Windows 11, the ones enterprise IT admins will most need to know. Later, well, we’ll be back with more about Windows 11, Windows 10 and their commercial customers.
