Windows 11 Can Be Available As Free Development for Windows 7, Windows 8.1 Users

Windows 11 can be made available as a free upgrade not only for Windows 10 users but also for those running Windows 7 and Windows 8.1.

Some clues about improved development support appeared in the recently opened version of Windows 11 prior to its official announcement.

Microsoft was previously using the same free Windows 10 upgrade program.

It was intended to bring more users into the Windows operating system and securely deploy people on older platforms that were no longer supported by Microsoft.

XDA developers have seen product configuration keys leak Windows 11 build themes featuring themes Windows 7 and Windows 8.1.

These buttons can be a signal that Microsoft has introduced Windows 11 as a free development for users on older Windows operating systems.

However, it is interesting to note that Windows 8 is not part of the setup keys.

This suggests that users of Windows 8 may need to upgrade to Windows 8.1 before moving to Windows 11.

According to data provided by the analytics platform

Statcounter, Windows 7 is the second largest Windows operating system in the world after Windows 10, with 15.52 percent of market share since May.

It is followed by Windows 8.1 with a 3.44 percent share. In contrast, Windows 8 has a 1.27 percent share.

The launch of Windows 11 is set for June 24. But before its launch, the new operating system has been widely described for its leaky design that has elevated the new Start menu and other major changes to the interface level.

Windows 10 users will receive Windows 11 as a free upgrade after its release, although it is unclear if it will be available for older apps soon.

In the past, Microsoft has implemented a free Windows 10 upgrade program that has enabled users on Windows 7 and later versions to move to the latest operating system.

And although the company based in Redmond, Washington completed free upgrades in 2017, users on Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 found that they had the option to be available until a few months back.
