As with any major OS release, we recommend a cautious approach, especially where your primary device is concerned. Major releases often bring new compatibility or support issues, which may take some time for the vendor to address with patches and updates.
Windows 11 was released recently, and MacOS Monterey is being released today, Monday, October 25. We encourage you to delay upgrading your systems to these new releases, until after such time as IT staff have tested them in our EECS and campus environment.
UPDATE (12/22/2021): As announced campus-wide yesterday by our CIO, Jenn Stringer, both MacOS Monterey and Windows 11 seem to have no compatibility issues with campus applications and tools, including wifi and the VPN. This matches the experience of our local staff.
