Windows 11: To install, or Not to Install

Windows 11 offers plenty for us to be excited about, from features that support new ways of working to additions designed to keep users secure. And if Microsoft is able to deliver on its promises, Windows 11 will deliver value to businesses of all kinds as they look to capitalize on new opportunities.

The Installation Assistant notifies you to install Windows 11 on a compatible PC the moment it releases. At this time, we are recommending to not upgrade to Windows 11. Although Windows 11 will have undergone extensive testing, both in the lab and during early-access, bugs are already occurring post-launch. Users have reported a variety of issues after installing Windows 11; some say they are experiencing poor Wi-Fi performance; some have found the Start menu search function is broken, and others are having problems with File Explorer. Also, it has been reported that Windows 11 suffers from memory issues that will eventually begin to cause slowdown. Like any new software update, Windows 11 will likely have its share of launch issues and bugs which hopefully will get better over time with new features.

We are gearing up to enjoy our time with Windows 11, but we wouldn’t call it an essential upgrade just yet — at least not for everybody. With that being said, we’re thinking carefully about whether these benefits are worth the inevitable nuisances that our customers might face as early adopters. Sometimes, after all, the tortoise wins the race while the hare is sleeping.
