The latest rumors about Windows 11 indicate that, most likely, users of older versions of Windows (7 and 8) will be able to update their operating systems to the new version Windows 11, which will be presented on June 24.
to me A story posted on the Windows Latest websiteThe version of Windows 11 circulating on the Internet includes a configuration option that indicates that users of Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 will have the ability to upgrade directly to Windows 11 using official tools from Microsoft. Moreover, the keys included in the configuration system indicate that the update can be done for free.
Of course, this information should be interpreted with some caution, since it was obtained based on a version of Windows that was not officially provided by Microsoft, and the company has not yet provided any information about how updates are handled in any of the versions of Windows.
On the other hand, it makes sense for Microsoft to allow updates to be free, since the financial impact is marginal and also because the company has already used a similar strategy with Windows 10. On top of all this, the update should be promoted. It was completed in 2016 and still works today and allows you to use a valid Windows 7 and 8 key to upgrade the operating system to Windows 10.
