Windows 11 follows the company’s typical staggered rollout
schedule and Microsoft isn’t moving away from extremely slow
rollouts. The company believes that releasing Windows 11 or
other big updates a few to catch any big bugs before rolling
out to everyone is the safest option.
Windows 11 is plagued with random bugs and restrictions or
limitations haven’t helped with the rollout. For example, the
company recently placed an upgrade block on devices using
certain versions of the Intel SST audio controller driver which
Blue Screen of Death errors.
The slow rollout and upgrade block allows the tech giant to
identify and resolve potential conflicts with certain
configurations. This ensures a smoother update experience for
more users, according to Microsoft officials. As many supported
PCs are still stuck on Windows 10 and users await Windows 11,
the company has finally begun expanding its rollout
Microsoft is expanding the rollout of Windows 11 as the overall
feedback is not negative. In a new support bulletin, Microsoft
explained that Windows 11 is ready for more supported devices.
“We are advancing the pace of the rollout faster than we
previously anticipated,” Microsoft said. Microsoft added that
the rollout experience and user feedback has been positive and
the company is now making the upgrade broadly available to more
eligible Windows 10 hardware.
It’s worth pointing out that Microsoft is offering Windows 11
on eligible devices only. If you have unsupported hardware,
you’ll need to bypass the restrictions manually by making
changes to Windows Registry.
Windows 11 improvements and rollout
Windows 11 arrived with plenty of design improvements like a
new Start menu, taskbar notification center, and features like
Microsoft Store, Windows Settings, better resources management
for hybrid processors, improvements to various areas of the
operating system, and more.
Surely enough, Windows 11 has brought in its own fair share of
bugs, issues, and limitations, some of which will be fixed in a
future release. However, Windows 11 is an optional upgrade and
users can stay on Windows 10, which will be updated every year
with some improvements.
Microsoft is increasingly cautious of Windows feature updates
rollout, but due to positive feedback from users, Microsoft is
also planning to push Windows 10 feature updates to older
versions of Windows 10. Notably, Windows 10 version 2004 will
soon be reaching their end of support.
