On October 5th, 2021, Microsoft released their newest operating system: Windows 11. While Windows 11 is more aptly considered a reworking of Windows 10, it did come with stricter-than-usual hardware requirements and several changes (most notably a change in aesthetic design). For systems that met the requirements, Windows 11 was offered instantly and for free, however, some users are still hesitant, wondering whether Windows 11 can support their necessary programs. The big question: is our WAM (WSUS Automated Maintenance) software compatible with Windows 11? Here’s what you need to know.
What Is Featured In Windows 11
Beyond the new and sleek aesthetic design on Windows 11 that seems to have users divided, Windows 11 also features several new and user-friendly features. Most notably, Windows 11 has integrated the use of Android apps, Microsoft Teams, widgets for further customization, as well as Auto HDR and DirectStorage. The new OS also features new Snap Groups and Snap Layouts, making it easier for users to multitask and transition from one device to another.
Is WAM (WSUS Automated Maintenance) Compatible With Windows 11?
Regardless of how we feel about Windows 11, like it or hate it, it’s available to us now and will continue to roll out through 2022. If you’re interested in the update, you may be wondering if it supports the programs essential to your work and your system functionality. Does WAM support Windows 11? The answer is yes and WAM will rename Windows 11 in WSUS properly in 2022.01 and later versions of WAM. The program that so many Windows users have made a part of their essential server routine continues to grow and be a part of new and changing Windows updates now and going forward.
WAM is available as an extremely affordable yearly license through AJ Tek, starting at only $60 USD a year for a single/upstream license—that’s only $5 a month! As mentioned before, you’ll also have access to prompt online support for the length of your subscription.
