Earlier this week, Microsoft released the first preview build of Windows 11 to Insiders. For most people, you’ll need to get the latest build via Windows Update using a Windows 10 PC. But a few already run Windows 11 on more unique devices: Raspberry Pi 4 and Lumia 950 XL.
As for the Raspberry Pi 4, a few images were shared by Reddit user theSPEEDCAT, who installed Windows 11 on a 4GB version of the Raspberry Pi 4 and claimed that the performance is better than Windows 10 running on the same hardware. To install Windows 11, SPEEDCAT simply downloads the ARM64 version of Windows 11 from the UUPdump site. Then, put the ISO on the SD card, following the same process that you would use to install Windows 10.
However, perhaps Lumia will be more interested. Programmer Gustave Monce also shared an interesting video on Twitter. Monce is known for porting the PC version of Windows 10 to the Lumia 950 XL and in this video we see him running Windows 11 on a Lumia 950 XL.
Windows 11 on Lumia 950 XL
The interface looks pretty much like you’d expect, having all the basic Windows 11 features, like the new taskbar, Start menu, and settings app. Even the Snap app works on the Lumia’s small screen. Of course, the performance is not ideal.
If you watch the video, you’ll notice how the Snapdragon 810 of the Lumia 950 XL is having a hard time working and there’s lag when double tapping the screen, launching the file explorer, hitting the Start menu and performing tasks other. The video also shows that the screen rotation is currently very slow.
Anyway, it’s impressive to see that this device still has the support of the community since it’s almost six years old. Although the Lumia line is dead, however, it’s clear that the fans are still passionate enough to keep it alive.
Since Microsoft has released an official ARM64 build of Windows 11, it shouldn’t be too surprising to see it ported to the Raspberry Pi 4 or Lumia 950 XL, but it’s still interesting to see how many people are willing to experiment to make things better. things can work.
