- Tram Ho
Windows 11 has some very strict security measures in place, requiring TPM 2.0, Secure Boot, and a CPU officially supported by Microsoft. In fact, even virtual machines are affected by such strict criteria, and companies like Oracle are working on forward-looking drivers for an alternative. Microsoft says this is essential because security is paramount in its new operating system.
Overall, security is also of prime importance for professionals and businesses, and according to an interesting recent survey that was conducted on an estimated 30 million devices from 60,000 organizations, the majority PCs cannot be upgraded to Windows 11 because they do not meet the system requirements.
While most of these PCs meet the 4GB RAM requirement, the majority (55.6%) don’t have CPUs on Microsoft’s officially supported list. Nearly one-fifth of PCs (19.26%) also failed the TPM 2.0 test.
Separate data are also presented specifically for TPM 2.0 because there are many differences among survey respondents. Data shows that about 20% of physical workstations and about 5% of physical servers fail to meet TPM. The majority of virtual machines are supposed to not have TPM enabled.
This is not the only Windows 11 survey conducted recently. Another survey of more than a thousand adult PC users in the US found that the majority don’t know or care about Windows 11 and most don’t want to upgrade to the next-generation Windows operating system either. So September AdDuplex data shows that Microsoft’s new operating system is already in 1.3% of PCs even though Windows 11 has not officially launched.
