Why?I'm hoping to install it to my MCPC which is an Intel i3 4130 (dual core, 3.4GHz) with 16GB DDR3. In any case, I'm sure there will be install hacks/tweaks to force an install almost immediately.
It's actually quite similar. Back when Vista was released the hardware and especially the drivers were not ready for primetime which caused a lot of issues and frustration for many users. It wasn't until SP2 was released that the OS became serviceable for most. But by that time Microsoft had to release Windows 7 because of all the bad press and feedback Vista had gained. Now Microsoft is trying to make sure the hardware and drivers are ready for primetime.It's not the same. Vista days everyone had slow HDDs. These days even slowest SDD will make Core2 Duo kind of comfortably usable with Win10.
funny coming from MS who's updates shoudlnt be allwoed to meet any principle."As we release to Windows Insiders and partner with our OEMs, we will test to identify devices running on Intel 7th generation and AMD Zen 1 that may meet our principles,"
At least for Ryzen, you can simply buy them a new processor to drop in. Most motherboards will work up to Ryzen 3000 series.I just can't wait until my younger relatives that I've passed my skylake and Ryzen 1000 stuff to start whining that they can't upgrade so I'm stuck building them newer PCs.
Tip for Microsoft. Test everything from Core 2 Duo SSE 4.1+ support. Don't let good working systems go to trash.
