    Personally, I think I'll stick with 10 for a year then see if 11 is worth it at that point.

      Microsoft realized that their initial goal to lift humanity out of poverty and to empower women in developing countries went up in flames. So they update their whole computer technology towards gaming - war games, simulation, adventure, role-play, strategy. That's why they want you to buy powerful hardware. So this is all bluff and creating an illusion especially for poor children that they will have a fulfilled life when playing computer games. Another evil mischief of Microsoft.

      My upgrade path is a well lit superhighway from Windows 7 to Linux. This windows 11 still appears to be that dark alley you thought was a short cut to keep using Windows past 7.

    My laptop met all the requirements apart from the processor. I created a bootable USB wiped my drive and installed windows 11 with no problems so far. I've even received and installed updates.

      @Testimony That is my situation, also... my processor *exceeds* MS minimum specs for Win 11, so I am at a loss as to why they are not allowing me to upgrade. Arrogant BS on the part of MS!

    Firefox doesn't force you to go through that rigamarol of clicking a dosen association prompts, they reverse engineered the same default setter that edge uses, so it's on opera and every other browser maker to put in that feature. repeat: you can click set as default once on firefox.

    Opera vs. Firefox? While you may be confused about which bro is better, the fact is both of them are good in their area and cannot be judged based on one aspect! It depends upon the user requirements and mindset. What I believe is they both are equally efficient to fulfil your purpose.

    I absolutely love the design and engineering behind Microsoft's products, especially after having my Surface Book for the past four years. That being said, it's so disappointing that despite their amazing designs, they're let down by disappointing specs, especially for the price tag. Not to mention how expensive it is when converted to the Australian dollar.

    I installed this morning and love it. My favorite so far is the new theme with the sunrise. Also I like how there are little status bars underneath the taskbar icons so you know when your download is almost done.

    4:58 I believe he meant like making the taskbar go on the left/right/top of the screen not just changing where the icons are on the bottom. I prefer my taskbar on the left and from all that I have heard it is currently not supported on Windows 11.

    Been running Windows 11 since beta and it's been great. If you have a relatively recent build it should go smooth. I think the saltiness is coming from older hardware setups.

    I just want to move my task bar to the top and as far as the intense security measure requirements, I think it's dumb you have to fresh install 11 to bypass the requirements, not a HUGE deal but it's definitely inconvenient, then the possible lack of updates, wow, thank you so much Microsoft, you're going to produce so much e-waste......

    My laptop is actually on the very limit of not being able to have Windows 11. I bought it in 2018, so it sucks that it's almost considered too old for a new OS version.

      @Houyhnhnm Microsoft has made the TPM bypass official to allow users that wants to download Windows 11 at their own risk.

    • Houyhnhnm
      Houyhnhnm

      there's a tool on git that bypasses hardware check during installation. MS was a bit sketchy regarding updates. the type of updates being blocked are for TPM vulnerabilities and patches, that's all, otherwise you'll still continue to get regular OS level updates. if you want these TPM updates, the git based installer bypasses the hardware check and the OS will allow you to get the TPM based updates. this is only useful for CPUs that are not on the compatibility list, but still qualify for TPM 2.0 for those who want to run the OS on something like an i7 920 (which I think is TPM 1.x), they won't need the git tool because there would be no reason for them to get TPM based updates since they won't do anything. they will be able to install win11 on it normally and just click "OK" on the warning/waiver that they are using incompatible hardware and that they should expect no support from MS team regarding any issues. these users will still get OS level updates as we are now on Win10, no difference. that's pretty much 99.9% of us anyway :P

      @Jake The 1060 can handle it fine.(GPU right?) Because I have a 4GB GTX 960 and I'm running the latest dev build with it, so assuming your CPU is eligible, you should be able to run it just fine.

    I'm an illustrator, so the Studio looks like a great option for me. It has loads of storage & memory, so I can work with my large files without brushing up against the device's limitations. The graphics should also make rendering simple pose models & images faster. I'd love to use this with a beefy desktop-dock & plug it into my Wacom & monitors. I could relegate my old potato desktop to server-duty. When I'm done at the drafting table, I could take my sketching with me, & still have a decent drawing pad. The price is pretty painful, but all these fancy new laptops are out of my wallet's range anyways, so it's all window-shopping in the end.

    I havent had any issues with Windows 11, having installed it on a first gen i5 CPU on my old Alienware m11x R2, HP Elitebook 8560w, and an i7 4790 desktop and its worked fine, I just noticed some issues with frame rates in a couple of games on the i74790 machine. I havent tried a CLEAN install on it yet, but i will try that at a later date.

    Microsoft OS is missing out on optimizing cord for its hardware and I think this would have been a perfect opportunity to work with AMD optimize the OS for their surface devices and have special edition surface with AMD processors with the integrated graphics for the normal persons, use extremely competitive prices

    A few lines from myself (using the Insider Preview release, with some updates then it should be pretty much the same as the official version anyway) 1. Hate how they prevent changing the default web browser, and yes Firefox somehow reverse-engineered that process which is really cool. I love Edge, it's pretty impressive - but please, no brute force. I have seen people losing their mind seeing the introduction screen of Edge and can't even close it back when it starts rolling out on W10. 2. Drivers seem to be fine and are the same from Windows Update as Windows 10 (for my own Acer gaming laptop at least). 3. I did catch the multiple Explorer memory leak issue - not a huge deal for me personally, but it should be fixed soon. 4. Updates seem to be faster (should be the same for most new systems). 5. C drive size still shrinks down quickly, haven't tried to clean stuff up or just analyze the space usage - because I just got back to my normal office work schedule again. (It's a 256GB SSD drive so I am not too worried, even with a ton of programs for coding and game launchers) 6. Gaming is good, I can still run older NFS games w/ mods as well as recent games. 7. Don't really know why but - if you use Rufus to create a USB drive of Windows 11 installation, it will still report the same UEFI:NTFS bootloader and disabling Secure Boot thingy - and Windows 11 requires Secure Boot ... Confusing for me. I don't know if it's fine with using the Media Creation Tool from Microsoft directly, would love to know it works for others. 8. Again, please don't force people to use a Microsoft Account with the Home edition - it's great to upsell other services like Office or OneDrive and stuff, and yes it makes sense because it will do good for some people according to their use case, I don't see most people needing that. 9. PIN is just a password, and without the thing of password tends to worry people. Maybe calling a security method "PIN" while allowing it to be somewhat similar to a traditional password will ease people out? I don't know, I kinda get that idea but it's kinda meh anyway.

      ​@Dominick Skinner I'm on linux now, so I can't check. But if I remember correctly you could do this on windows 10? And from my experience, excuses on the veins of "it can't be done because tech" are just that, excuses. And I disagree it makes sense from a users perspective. If it's opening on a separate browser window, I want it to open in the browser I'm used to, and that I configured to my liking.

    • Dominick Skinner
      Dominick Skinner

      @Menphy edge isn't going to open links outside of edge, same way if you have a different default browser on your phone and a link from a PWA will take you to chrome. Sticking within the browser makes sense

    Windows 11 runs great on my Rtx 2080 i9-10850k 16gb ram while my new laptop with an Rtx 3050 ryzen 5 5600h 8gb of ram got reduced performance in games with 11. In battlefield 2042 I had 11 frames on 11 and then 40 on 10. 30-40 frames on new world on windows 11 to 60 on 10.

    I can't imagine liking how Windows 10 looks over Windows 11 lol. Specifically because Windows 10 doesn't really have a "look". It's a combination of legacy UI and icons from 7 and newer tile icons from 8. 10 had some changes like the Star Menu but like it didn't really overhaul anything, it's just a combination of a bunch of UI that's doesn't go together.

    While the studio laptop might not be for every one it must be said that it's leaps above the surface book. While it looks like an Acer R7 it will perform the task of a "laptop" much better then the surface book did and the surface pro.

    The design director was inspired by the cereal Cheerios, from its bland taste to its bland look. Also my games took massive FPS drops. I personally lock my frames at 60 for a smooth consistent gameplay with a 1660 super. When windows 11 came along my frames dropped to 40-50fps.

      @FolkGarlic Ch. The only issue with running Windows 11 is for people with ancient hardware that's over 6-10 years old without TPM embedded. Even a Asus L210 running Celeron 4020 can run Windows 11 just fine.

    Just got a surface pro 6 a couple months ago and updated it to the insider build of windows 11 pretty much as soon as I could, I have the lower tier model so things aren't as snappy as I'd like, but for my purposes (which is digital art and occasional web browsing) it works very well. I am having an issue where I can't access its home network folders from my windows 10 desktop tho.

    Im just gonna wait a year or two to see how windows 11 is gonna go. I'd rather let people who can replace their hardware go first than me who can't afford to buy new hardware due to money and stuff. Windows 10 still has a few more years until it isnt getting updates anymore. So i still have time to use win10.

    Reasons why I'm loving Windows 11 as a "techy user" 1. I already used a third-party app to center my taskbar, now it's a default feature 2. I use a 2 in 1 laptop, the OS not minimizing what I'm working on when switching to tablet mode is a god-send 4. the new animations look great 5. the new right-click menu is very clean and honestly is quicker once you get used to it 6. the new start menu is the perfect middle ground between the aesthetic based one from windows 10 and the function from the older versions of windows 7. As a tech-savvy user I appreciate the beginner-friendly settings as I can see how much simpler it would be for someone less experience and I'm sure there are other reasons that I'll figure out as I use it and get to know it

    • MaZEEZaM

      I agree for the most part but I much prefer the tile system on the start menu as I had apps I frequently used set in there own sections which made viewing and selecting them really quick and easy. Its also been buggy for a few apps like the Netflix app where the screen would flash multiple times when starting a video.

      @wyterabitt That isn't just due to difference in build between now and then (although I agree that products used to be built to last a lot more in the past...), it's a whole lot of time between 2006 and now and if you account for inflation in £ a £1000 then is about the equivelant of £1500 now, which is why there is a false perception that you used to be able to get better quality for cheaper. Also back then £ used to be worth more on the international market back then which did in fact make things cheaper, for one example £1 used to be worth between $1.85 up to even $2 at times back then, it's now worth $1.4 at a better day. Anyway, I feel like I'm going full retard going so deep into it, have nice day (or a good night I suppose).

    • wyterabitt
      wyterabitt

      @Geth I was using HP and Dell laptops for those prices. But I have been using laptops over desktops since 2006, and there is a massive difference between then and now. Cheaper laptops are not the same as back then, you can sometimes find laptops that give you the same specs from a "cheaper" brand that lasts longer and performs better, or at least matches it. But like I said, I wasn't using a cheap brand anyway so that isn't relevant. (no idea how I missed your reply, I am cleaning emails and just found this).

    • Geth

      @wyterabitt This isn't a problem of laptops being expensive but rather the iPad being overpriced but I digress. What I've been talking about are the capabilities of the device, not just price, and there is a big difference between what a laptop can be used for versus a tablet. Also just because you can get a laptop this "cheap" doesn't mean you should. Paying extra for something a bit better and from a reputable brand can cost you less in the long term. Better longetiveity of the device, better support in case of failure and better expirience for the next 3-5-7-10 years that you're gonna be using the thing for. If you buy something with a but higher specs then you need at the moment you likely won't have to upgrade for longer, if something breaks is a more expensive device from a good brand you'll have a better chance that the company will fix it for you rather then shrug you off with some excuse because they barely have profit margins on their chinesium device, if you get a device with solid componets you won't be stuck with a shitty touchpad and a weak wi-fi card for the next X years of using the device. Speaking from personal expirience, practically every time I cheaped out on something it bit me in the arse later, so I never buy the cheapest thing anymore. I don't say don't buy budget products, by all means do, but also make sure it's actually worth buying and don't be afraid to step up your budget a little if the cheaper options seem fishy.

    • wyterabitt
      wyterabitt

      @Geth I think you massively overestimate how expensive it is to get some form of gaming laptop. Which is impressive because they are expensive. A fully specd out Ipad is about £940, you can get a laptop with a 3050ti 16GB RAM, 512GB NVME, 4K Display and 11th gen I5 for less than this. And for almost the same price (£20-£40 more) you can get the same with either an i7 i7-11800H or Ryzen 7 5800H. And those laptops are from an overpriced company I used to just to get an idea, shop around and you can get even better deals with better specs.

      @Yuvraj Gandhi An Asus tuf A15 with ryzen 5800 and a 3060. I was really into one of those flat, sqare edged ipads at around 930 dollars where I live, 128 gigs if I remember correctly. Then I decided to use the money for something more than just a tablet to watch netflix on so I was looking at laptops and found this one for extra 410 dollars more than that ipad. Best decision ever since my old gaming laptop was from 2015 and wasn t even supporting windows 11.

    You don't have to wipe your drive, just download the ISO, save it to your desktop and run it. You'll get asked to accept that your system doesn't fully meet the requirements and off you go, you might need to bypass the TPM but that's pretty easy to do anyway.

      @Christian Van Iten I'm sorry if it came across to you like that, but I am pissed (not at you, but Microsoft) and I don't think it's a great idea to recommend people to go to the Registry for that. I'm not taking it out on anyone and I definitely think Microsoft is to blame for this. Meanwhile, I tried what you suggested in a Windows 11 VM, editing the respective key in Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StuckRects3 and restarting Explorer caused the task bar to appear glitched on the left, only showing the network and sound icons. Top and bottom works, but it's not where some of us want it.

    ive honestly had no complaints with windows 11 especially if your upgrading from 10 i even use opera gx and it does open edge the only real peeve not much of a complaint i have is the right click it doesnt show all option its more compact and you have to click more but that is a nice feature for the more simple people honestly windows 11 isnt drastically different from 10 but the interface is the right way for windows togo.
