We’ve Tested Windows 11 Ahead of Next Week’s Launch

June 16, 2021

On June 24, Microsoft will unveil its latest version of Windows, Windows 11. We spent some time with the OS today after a copy leaked online. The upgrade function didn’t work properly on our testbed and the system itself failed to recognize the OS image when we installed it on a bootable drive (both USB and not). Fortunately, VMWare Workstation Pro 16 can virtualize a TPM 2.0 module, provided you have one in your system. This specific OS image requires it. It took a few hours to get things squared away, but the eventual result was this desktop:

The image dates to very late May, making it fairly recent. We don’t know when Microsoft will release Windows 11 to manufacturers for system shipments, but nothing about the installation implied the release was less than final. That doesn’t mean it isn’t, however, so take what you see with a grain of salt.

I want to be clear about something upfront: This is not a review. We have not been briefed on Windows 11 or heard Microsoft discuss its features. That doesn’t mean I don’t have a few thoughts about what there is to see, but this is no kind of final word on the end product.
