Re: FW: Installing windows 11
I don’t know if you could upgrade to XP and for years, upgrades weren’t advised, clean installations were, but I upgraded from Windows 3.1 to Windows 95. I would think you could upgrade until Millennium but from that to XP may have been too different. Others may know.
I’m not even sure that was an option in the XP days?
I’ve not heard of people upgrading Windows then.

But how many days is xp days?
They should give you 11 days because its Windows 11.
Advice tends to be to wait three months after a completely new version of Windows to upgrade. and if you do upgrade, it is very important to know that Microsoft only gives you ten days to revert if you want to go back to the previous version you were running.
Funny thing about Upgrades, there is always that temptation to switch to the newest, just because it is the newest.
The problem with New stuff is that often there is a bit of a learning curve to get through, as you navigate around learning how to do the normal stuff you've been doing without thinking about it in the old version.
Then there are those unknown places where the Screen Reader fails to read the screen well, and you stumble around until a fix or a work around comes along.
So why Upgrade?
Well, I normally don't until a bit of time has gone by, so others who fall to the temptation of the New Item install it and find out its strengths and weaknesses.
And lets not forget those pesky Bugs that are always part of a new release of anything new.
I usually wait until the first Service Pack, or when the edition goes from X.0 to X.1 before I give in to my curiosity and then fork out the money for the upgrade.
But, there are good reasons to upgrade, and some of those reasons are that the newest version will do what you like to do better than the old version. Perhaps the new edition works better with a Screen Reader. Or perhaps the newest edition has new features that might make your tasks easier to accomplish. If there seems to be real improvements, then perhaps it is time to take the plunge and push the Button to start downloading your Upgrade tonight.
