Microsoft’s Windows 11 outreach efforts aren’t going very well

More difficult than solved, excessively severe moderation tends to cause.

As soon as the new OS version reached general availability, Microsoft Program Manager Aria Carley responds to users of Microsoft Tech Community issues concerning updates of Windows 11.

In a Livestream on July 21, program director Aria Carley answered concerns about the ultimate hardware requisites for upgrading to Windows 11 for Microsoft Tech Community users. Although Windows 11 alpha images have now been disabled with hardware requirements—including but not limited to support for TPM 2.0, Carley has confirmed that the “hardware floor” for final versions is true.

“We speak about what devices are and are not eligible for this new hardware floor,” said Carley, adding “We realize that it stinks some of them are not qualified for Windows 11.” She added that the unpopular hardware floor is imposed by Microsoft to “maintain devices that are far more productive, experience and above all to have greater security so that they can remain safe in this new workforce.”

Although the scenario is recognized “Carley compounded his hardware floor inflexibility in reply to a later inquiry for users affected by the leak, saying “Group policy will not allow you to overcome Windows 11 hardware enforcement. We will still prevent you from upgrading your appliance to ensure that your appliances are secure and supported.”

It’s not unexpected that these responses did not sit well with the public—when the video reads from the top comment, according to Windows Central, “Many of the answers turn out to be super-tone deaf … it looks like Windows 11 would be another Windows 8.” Additional feedback – again, Windows Central says – suggests that the hardware requirements, which seem to be unneeded, are a thinly veiled approach for pushing new computer sales to enhance their Windows license sales.

Unfortunately, we’re forced to take several blogs to talk about what the users of the Microsoft Tech Community said since Microsoft just disabled video comments, which deleted all comments that were made in reaction to the harshness. Although the comments have been omitted, the vote is not, and by this afternoon just 146 dislikes 2,7K.

Microsoft’s ease with new hardware requirements, whatever legitimate its undefined safety advantages, is, to our Avis, excessively pushy and poorly addressed. A much milder effort, “Made for Windows 11,” asking OEM hardware providers to fulfill the needs of the new Windows-installed OEM systems, would probably have been adequate to fulfill the same aims in approximately the same time frame.
