Many Windows Users Don’t Even Know Windows 11 Is About to Launch
Many Windows Users Don’t Even Know Windows 11 Is About to Launch
Survey shows users are confused with the new requirements    Sep 28, 2021 13:25 GMT  ·  By Bogdan Popa  ·   

Windows 11 is projected to launch next week as one of the biggest software releases of the year, but as it turns out, not everybody is aware a new operating system is coming.

Not even Windows users, that is, as a survey conducted by Savings reveals that only 38 percent of those already running Microsoft’s operating system are currently in the know regarding the upcoming launch.

“In fact, two in three users didn’t know whether their computers had the necessary hardware to make the change , and 45 percent weren’t sure if they would download the update when it begins rolling out in early October,” the study reads.

And if you think this is bad news for Microsoft, just listen to this. Only 41 percent of the users claim they are interested in downloading and installing Windows 11, even if their devices are eligible for the free upgrade. 14 percent of the respondents said they wouldn’t install the OS, while 45 percent are still unsure.

14 percent of the users said they are excited about the prospects of running Android apps on Windows 11, while 13 percent of them claimed they like how the operating system looks.
The system requirements confusion

Only 3 percent are interested in widgets, and just 2 percent said they like the new Microsoft Store.

“About 14 percent of Windows users said the ability to run Android apps from their computer was the feature they are most excited about. This means users won’t have to switch between their phones and their PCs to explore social media or play in-app games, and the look and feel of the apps will be very similar across both devices. Additionally, this change could impact a large number of Americans: about 47 percent of U.S. smartphone users have Androids,” the survey reads.

Many users are still confused about the new hardware requirements, as no less than two in three people said they’re not sure if their devices can run Windows 11.
