Although this is good news for many users, it’s barely a surprise. Microsoft has made Windows 10 a free upgrade for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, and making Windows 11 free is the obvious choice. However, you will need a computer that meets the minimum requirements. This time around, Windows 11 will require a 64-bit processor, 4GB of memory, and 64GB of internal storage.  Since the new version will be free, Microsoft plans to roll it out through Windows Update like a feature update for Windows 10 devices. The only thing that the company isn’t saying is that if this version will be free for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. However, it might be the case, since many users using the leaked version of Windows 11 were able to activate the OS with a valid Windows 7 product key.
