Software Update: WhyNotWin11 2.3.2

Microsoft plans to release Windows 11 at the end of this year. The new Windows has certain system requirements and Microsoft had made available an unclear tool that indicated whether the computer met them or not, but has since taken it offline to improve it. 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 website, it is not from the maker himself. Below is the changelog of version 2.3.2: comes with the following changes:

  • Clean up Code
  • Updated Language Files
  • Added RTL Support in Translations
  • Added “n” Support in Translations
