It became known that Microsoft completely banned the Windows 10 and 11 operating systems in Russia, as well as some other programs.
Netizens reported in Russia that, it is impossible to download the Windows 10 and Windows 11 operating system from the official website. In addition, it became impossible to download the Media Creation Tool. It is noted that if you try to download the Windows 11 operating system from the official website, the network user in Russia will be redirected to a page with the inscription “404 – File or Directory not found”. It is worth recalling that Microsoft banned the sale of its products in Russia in early March.
Experts note that if the ban on downloading Windows 10 and Windows 11 operating systems in Russia is not a failure, but a deliberate decision by Microsoft, then it will turn into big problems for many users. For example, it is reported that current versions of Windows will no longer receive updates, which means they will become more vulnerable to various viruses. At the same time, problems will arise not only for ordinary citizens of the Russian Federation, but also for officials who have the Windows system installed at their workplaces. If Microsoft really banned Windows 10 and 11 systems in Russia, then the Linux system is called an alternative in the future.
It is worth noting that Microsoft itself has not yet commented on the information that appeared on the network about the impossibility of downloading Windows 10 and 11 systems in Russia from the official website.
