    Im running Windows 11 now, its a lot faster for gaming than the latest 10 (DirectStorage and AutoHDR)

    Theres a nice website where it runs as a preview in your browser btw, https://win11.blueedge.me/

    Maybe true but I am not buying a computer to became a Service myself but to be productive with whatever I do. Unfortunately for most of the time I waste time to repair stuff instead of creating an actual content. This cannot stand. My all friends use Macs in their studios and they are telling me that they had similar problems and they never regretted swapping systems.

    Implying you'll have much choice in the matter.

    You'll probably just wake up one day and find an automatic update has already upgraded you.

    You do realize you can roll windows back, right..?

    And that it doesn't even do the big bi-annual updates automatically .. ?

    The funny thing for me that keeps me dual booting isn't games anymore. I can get most of them working well enough. It's frickin' productivity software. Needing to use Microsoft Office and Creative Cloud (instead of Linux equivalents). Literally the only reasons I still need to keep Windows around.

    Hell no I won’t upgrade! Windows 11 is the next step in Bill Gates plan to take over the country! Once you download windows 11, it’ll activate the micro coding in the vaccines of anyone in proximity!

    they were quite aggressive with it last time. had that popup in windows 7 for over a year and i don't think you could do anything about the pre-download hogging your hdd/sdd space without advanced knowledge.

    heck even now it pesters me about making a microsoft account regularly and the "no" button isn't always obvious.

    All this talk of Windows 11 is making me want to install the insider beta build on my main PC I know I shouldn't, but damn, me wants it! /gollum

    "I believe you have my stapler..."

    il prolly install it on a newly build pc, the one im currently using will remain win 10 for the foreseeable future, because for gaming the biggest thing about win 11 is the auto HDR and Direct storage, both of which will be implemented in win10 aswell.

    As you can see in my signature, i'm running really old hardware. My mobo does suport a TPM module, but it is 1.2. I've decided to keep W10 at least untill 2024 when suport ends, i'll take a decisition about building an updated rig after that.

    I don't know what crawled up your leg, but you should take a deep breath.

    Have a good one.

    That is true, but most modern computers have plenty of storage for it, so I don't mind too much. The popups were annoying though, and my parents are kinda tech illiterate so I had to roll back their computers a couple times for them

    heck even now it pesters me about making a microsoft account regularly and the "no" button isn't always obvious.
    I don't get pestered for that and I have a local account as well.

    Windows 10 feels very different from win8 to a user, same as win 8 feeling very different from win7, even if under the hood they're very similar.

    I'll upgrade when windows 10 gets RIP'd - or if W11 is really stable and secure - but the Windows 8 ALPHA is literally what made me make the move to the job I have today lol

    For anyone in tech support, if you supported windows users when windows 8 released - you'll know exactly what I mean. Anyway - I hope W11 is super good though because I don't mind moving over to it IF its good.

    I'm missing the "If it's good, sure, why not?" option.

    But yes, I will, assuming it's better than 10 for gaming, which is the only thing I do on Windows..
    success comes in the form of technical solutions to problems, not appeals to our emotional side

    It sure does.

    I also logged in one day and found myself with windows 10 with no input from myself. No, this is not a joke. I was avoiding it purely because of bandwidth issues. I should really send MS the bill.
    The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, but wiser people so full of doubts.

    And some articles suggest, that TPM is about turning PC into smartphone even more, i.e. about restricting your freedom and offsetting ownership over your PC from you to other companies even more. So, no. From Windows 7 I will only switch to Linux. There are not so many things, that prevent me from doing it. I know, that this step has it's downsides too. But "My computer belongs to me, not M$/Google/Apple" thing outweights everything else.

    You will remember Win7 with tears, when you won't be able to open your Word document on other computer without "Share your document just for 100$/year per computer!" feature, because it will be encrypted by TPM.
    I have never seen so much conspiracy theory drivel distilled into so clear a form of mental handicap as this.

    Large underlying code and Kernel changes, which happened between XP > Vista/7 and 7 > 8/10.

    The backhanded ad hominem because youre butt hurt about being a luddite is funny, though.

    And if people “got it”, the thread wouldnt be full of people acting like its some major overhaul that theyll have to wait out years of problems and bugs.

    When, like, people are already using it and it works fine. Right now today.

    But thanks for posting your drivel so you could try to appear self important or in some way knowledgeable.

    Cool. Its already stable. And just as secure as Win 10, since it is.. you know, Win 10. With a new UX.

    Windows 8 was a major update to the core OS/kernel. It was not like the Vista > 7 transition (where 7 was just a rename of SP3 for Vista to get away from the bad press) where basically nothing changed except what they called it.

    Windows 11 is to Windows 10 what 7 was to Vista. Its just a rename, though it does come with a shiny new UX (that you may or may not like).

    Your failure to click two dialogue boxes and prevent it aren’t Microsoft’s fault.

    You can disable Windows from EVER updating with a simple registry edit and/or policy.

    But, hey, cool story bro.
