Microsoft initially set a very high bar for the computers of potential users of Windows 11. The strict hardware requirements even extend to virtual machines. Meanwhile, the readiness of devices for business users to move to the new OS leaves much to be desired.
Based on a Lansweeper study of nearly 30 million devices in 60,000 organizations, most PCs cannot be upgraded to Windows 11 because they do not meet certain system requirements. The company made the corresponding conclusions in the report “Audit of readiness for Windows 11” (Windows 11 Readiness Audit).
Although most computers have the required 4 gigabytes of RAM, more than half (55.6%) lack a processor from Microsoft’s list, and nearly a fifth (19.26%) lack TPM 2.0.
Additional data related to this module has been published separately. It is reported that approximately 20% of workstations and about 5% of physical servers lack TPM 2.0.
This is not the only analysis carried out in connection with the imminent release of Windows 11. Not long ago, about 1000 PC users were surveyed in the United States. It turned out that most do not know anything about Windows 11 or are simply not interested in the topic, and most do not want to update to the new operating system at all. But for me, according to the company AdDuplex, Windows 11 is already installed on 1.3% of computers.
