Windows 11 is available globally and we want to explain some tricks to install it cleanly without the alleged limitations imposed by Microsoft, although this may change in the final version.
It seems that Microsoft is softening every day the striking limitations that it has tried to impose with the announcement of its new Windows system and that theoretically imply an improvement in security. We will see what these measures are in the final version because they block many PCs to upgrade Windows 10 to the new Windows 11 system, it is certainly something not very interesting in order to implement a new operating system and sell services to the more people the better.
