I tried to upgrade from W10 to W11 for 'free', but the app said I needed a new computer first.

And, how is this relevant to the discussion?

The subtext is that if I have to buy a new computer for a free upgrade, then it's not really free, is it?

The automatic upgrade to Windows 11 requires certain security hardware that some computers based on 4+ year old hardware designs don't have.

And, there is a work-around to install Win 11 on older hardware if you want to go that route (that won't have the newer security features).
