The first Insider preview build of Windows 11 just started rolling out to Insiders. As you'd expect from the first-ever officially released build of a new operating system, it has a ton of new features. With it, you can test out the new Start menu, File Explorer, Taskbar, widgets, and much more. Our senior editor Zac Bowden breaks down the full changelog, but we want to know how many of you plan on actually installing it.

If you're on a mobile device, you may need to use this direct link to participate in the poll.

To get the latest build of Windows 11, you have to enroll in the Windows Insider Program. You also have to set your PC to be in the Dev Channel of the Insider Program. We have a complete guide on how to get the first public preview of Windows 11 to help you out.

Note that your system may still run into some issues in terms of compatibility. Microsoft is letting people with certain older hardware try out the operating system, but there are still many PCs that will not be able to update to it.

To know if your PC will be able to upgrade to Windows 11, make sure to check out its minimum requirements.

Microsoft has pulled the PC Health Check app for the time being, but you can use a new app called "WhyNotWin11" to find out why your PC doesn't meet the minimum requirements for Windows 11.

Please let us know if you'll run Windows 11 Insider builds on your PC and explain why or why not in the comments below.
