KB5020683: Microsoft starts delivering Windows 11 to Windows 10 22H2 users via OOBE

Almost since Windows 11 came out last year, Microsoft has been eager to push it in an "aggressive" manner. Back in May of this year, the company announced that Windows 11 was ready for widespread deployment. Meanwhile, the Redmond giant has also been persuading Windows 10 21H1 users to update to Windows 11 for versions that are coming out of service, while for those with Windows 8.1, Microsoft has even urged users to replace their computers with new ones to enjoy all the benefits of Windows 11.

A few days ago, the company has started offering the next-generation Windows as an out-of-the-box experience (OOBE) update to Windows 10 22H2 users for the first time.
