    Hey, if you can do what you need to do in Linux, why not! The moment that cloud gaming meets my standards (because I doubt Apple will ever make game pcs), I'll completely ditch X86 and shift to Apple for gaming as well.

    Something better than Windows 11.

    System administrators will have an administrative interface where they can customise everything to their heart's desire, as they do now.
    i do want a simple clear UI.

    but that's not what they give me.

    when i press my start menu theres like 6 ads for their store, netflix and productivity software (considered getting a third party program for it but ended up just using more shortcuts on desktop again). one of my most used features, volume mixer, requires more clicks to get to than in win7. wallpaper management on multiple displays is definitely not what iwould call simple or clear, i use a 3rd party program for that. still use a 3rd party media player. use their old image viewer instead of the new one cause it's simpler. %appdata%, another highly used feature is also hidden away for some reason. i don't know how to get to diskmanager through the config screen even though that's a feature my parents had to use once. msconfig actually got improved in win10 but is also hidden away, though i admit i haven't had to use that to stop unwanted crap running at boot for many years now.

    for every good "simple and clean" improvement they do, there is another one that tries to do that but actually does the opposite.

    Oh don't get me wrong, Windows is in fact shit, but it's not limited to 11; that's why I said it's what Windows should be and why I use MacOs for everything but gaming.

    If there was an OS that did nothing but start games, I'd use it.

    If some day I can buy a GPU at a normal price so I can replace my computer, sure. But that day is not at all in sight…

    I'll switch as soon as it's "stable", most likely.
    I'll wait for others to beta-test and until my IT friends tell me it's cool and good now.

    So yea I'll get it once it comes out and I figure out the secure boot.
    I can't believe that in 2021 you still can't change the desktop font family and have to resort to a kludgy registry hack. Same for keyboard layout in that Microsoft won't recognize Colemak. It's only the 3rd most popular English keyboard layout in the world.

    the windows 11 home version requires an internet connection and some other stupid things. I'm not paying for that.

    and 10 is just 8 but a reskin
    and 8 is just 7 but a reskin

    So why didn't people like 8 again?

    But it was. The skin changed, but the underlying stuff was all the same. Win 8 couldn't do anything different than 7 or 10, it just looked different

    If Win11 crashes and burns (like the usual pattern would suggest) we can jump from 10 directly to 12.

    At least the upgrade is free so it isn't a paid beta test like every live service game nowdays.

    While I'll prob run in on one of my computers (other than the insider one I already have it on now) I'm not really impressed with it, (personal taste but I think the interface is kinda "awkward" not sure the best term but it's best one i can think of (first person at work I showed it too said it reminded him of his old mac, and he's more a mac user than a PC user), even worst customization and less settings than 10 had, the Default apps section is junk ( it's ok to be able to pick each file type but moronic to not have a select all, while the browser one gets the most attention it's the media ones that piss me off). The security requirements I think are BS (it's fine to require it on all new 11 certified computers but it should not be forced on older ones, I've played with it on a old i5 2nd Gen and it ran ok, IMO if they really cared about security they would want more people running it even without the TPM for updated patches) Personally I think this might be another Windows 8.0 debacle but who knows.

    It looks horrible. It looks like MacOS and I HATE MacOS. It also looks like it was designed primarily for phones instead of PCs, I don't know why.
    Upgrading from Win10 to Win11 will probably be similar to upgrading from Win7 to Win8 back in the day. It looks vastly inferior to Win10 just like how Win8 was vastly inferior to Win7.
    Even though my hardware can easily handle it, I am not upgrading it unless I can atleast retain the Win10 look, I really hate the MacOS look in the OP's picture.

    ... So you're agreeing that it was a reskin then. A horrible reskin is still just a reskin
