Software Update: WhyNotWin11 2.2.4

Spread the love

Microsoft recently announced that Windows 11 will be released at the end of this year. The new Windows has certain system requirements and Microsoft has a unclear tool that indicates whether the computer complies or not. Developer Robert C. Maehl has created a program called WhyNotWin11 that makes all this much more insightful. WhyNotWin11 is open source and a single executable, so no installation is required. By the way, be careful with the WhyNotWin11.com website, it is not from the maker himself. Below is the changelog of the last few versions, all released in the last 48 hours.
