During the official presentation of Windows 11 Microsoft did not specify its launch date. The operating system is currently under test and no precise timetable for the “mainstream” kickoff is known.
Since the publication of the first Preview, rumors have been positioned for the month of October 2021. Microsoft seems to have this objective. Why ? The firm indicates that the deadline for submitting pilots for OEMs is set for next September. In other words, Microsoft wants OEMs to send in their drivers by the end of September. The goal is to have time to include them in the first installation ISOs scheduled for October, when consumer deployment is expected to begin.
The documentation precise
“Partners looking to achieve compatibility with systems shipped with Windows 11, version 21H2 Release, can factory install drivers for components that have achieved compatibility with Windows 10 v2004 through September 24, 2021.”
If manufacturers can pre-install the operating system from that deadline, a public release in October looks possible.
