Enthusiast ran Windows 11 on a six-year-old Lumia 950 XL smartphone while another installed Microsoft’s latest OS on a Raspberry Pi 4

Microsoft surprised everyone with the inflated requirements for processors for running Windows 11, but the absence of a CPU in the list of officially supported ones does not mean that it cannot run a new OS on it, just some of its functions will not be available. In fact, even single-board PCs and old smartphones are suitable for running Windows 11.

Twitter user Gustave Monce posted a video in which Windows 11 runs pretty well (albeit not without brakes) on a six-year-old Microsoft Lumia 950 XL smartphone! Moreover, according to the enthusiast, most of the functions are quite functional, including such a smartphone that allows you to make calls.

It should be noted that Microsoft Lumia 950 XL is a fairly common model for experimenting with installing different versions of Windows. Initially, the smartphone came out with Windows 10 Mobile, and later other assemblies began to be installed on it. Now the turn has come to Windows 11.

Another enthusiast – a user of the popular American Reddit forum – launched Windows 11 on a single board computer Raspberry Pi 4. It is even noted that Windows 11 runs faster on it than Windows 10.
