6th and 7th are going to be added. there is already talk. its in beta they want testing done on known modern cpus. I can defend them because even 7th gen have some weak mobile 2 core cpus ( so they are testing and will add). honestly 4 cores should be the new minumum when buying a new pc.It's still arbitrary if you have or can have everything else in the requirements, but Microsoft still won't support the CPU. Still, if Windows 10 support gets extended, much like they did with XP, most people can weather it. It's not as much as disallowing upgrades to 11 as is sunsetting Windows 10 on seventh generation Intel CPUs and AMD 1st generation Ryzen when these CPUs aren't really all that old. 4 years is not really that old when you consider the costs, e-wastes, and the ending of Moore's Law. I digress. Push me to Linux, then. Probably the best case scenario in the long run anyhow.
