Hmm. Little things like this give me pause:
If you used to right-click on the Taskbar and open the Task Manager from the corresponding context menu, too bad, you're out of luck. The Windows 11 Taskbar does not have a proper context menu.
It's not streamlining if it prevents you from doing something in the simplest way. Maybe I'll hold off after all.

Lordy, I only switched to Win10 just over a year ago, at this rate I'll be taking the plunge some time around 2030 :lol:

superb overview between the two. This video has just confirmed that I really do not need to upgrade. I will leave it until MS switches off support for Win10 - around 2025

...and I really do not need any Amazon Android apps on my PC.

....and so it begins. This is why I never install or buy SW 1.0

I'm increasingly glad I've held off in the end.

The 15% performance reduction on AMD CPUs feels like it's intentional, which begs the question of whether there's any law which would prevent MS in theory from artificially hampering performance on "non-favoured" hardware. Pretty shady if that's what's happening.

I'm not sure I would go that far; my fairly new Surface laptop has an AMD processor in it - I don't think Microsoft would intentionally cripple one of their main hardware lines without it affecting the competition equally.

Nope, and it's highly unlikely I will.

The high profile problems aren't going to help with the adoption rate, but I think it's a bit early to be saying Vista 2.

Windows does seem to have that Star Trek movie problem of a good one followed by a bad one.

98 - good
Me - bad
XP - good
Vista - bad
7 - good
8 - bad
10 - good

Of course I'm conveniently ignoring 95, which was revolutionary, and 8.1, which I consider a retcon of 8 rather than a full blown version. There's 2000, I guess, but that was never really marketed to home users.

good summing up. I expect a lot of people have the same feeling we do. Win 10 ain't broke, why am I upgrading again?
