I've got some old hardware which has Windows 10 drivers, but nothing for Windows 11. I haven't had to install any official drivers yet, but it got me thinking. If hardware is compatible with Windows 10, does that mean it is automatically compatible with Windows 11, because it is so similar underneath?

Windows 8/8.1, and Windows 10 drivers seem to work fine on Windows 11.
