    been running W11 on my beast and it's fire. just make sure to opt out of any and every diagnostic/data shit. ITS GOOD, (im big data/AI/cloud consultant. & mechanical engineer, designer, inventor etc.) its good, it needs mad updates and optimize, and you're good. better than W10 for sure.

    Maybe an omission, maybe included in in "extra security stuff" but the deal breaker for me is having to obtain and use a MS account to access your own computer. I can understand the use of Domain logins for corporate networked machines but I have never seen any significant benefits of having a corporation control the access to a personal computer. Long live the local login! Linux, you're looking luxurious on Framework's laptop.

    It's probably just the some virtualization or Bluestacks/Nox emulator or something. If it has native Android support though, IDK. That's ground breaking to me.

    I am sorry, but I have to play the devil's advocate here and say that Windows Vista was great. I have used it from around 2012 (so, not from the very beginning) until a few weeks ago (July 2021, when I removed the last hard drive (an SSD, btw) that had Vista (64-bit) Vista on it) and it has always worked just fine. I have even used Vista for gaming. Aero made Vista look beautiful. I hate that "minimalism" design of Windows 10. I only had Windows 6.1 -- I mean, Windows 7 -- at work. I made Windows 7 look like Vista (advantage of being a local sysadmin). From what I am seeing, the chance is very high that I will not put Windows 11 (Windows 10.1?) on my computers, except for my gaming computer probably, alas) and replace Windows 10 with Linux after 2025. I think Microsoft has lost touch with what they want with Windows.

    It’s amazing how similar it is to a Mac. Unique in its own way with the difference being trying to be different. Download the hybrid windows and macOS. Only problem is u have neither. Pros and cons no doubt, but until they create something new and noteworthy…. Like ground up new look, functionality , and ease of use, I shall choose to use Apple.

    Many people should be aware that online banking demands you have a clean pc or device to use it with in the first place. If that's not the case and something happens you are on your own. i don't even use online banking with my phone because of the intrusive apps who demand access to basically everything they don't need to be able to function, yest you have to agree or it wont work. Now that's the same with windows 11, try to get rid edge uninstall it, like anything else to find out next day it's all back, like edge don't use got rid of it and bam it's back in your face. Installed it self without warning or popups, you have no choice when you install windows 11 you have no control over your own pc, you have lost the battle for privacy and control of your personaly owned devices!!

    Looks Microsoft is moving away from productivity to entertainment based products. XP and windows 7 very productive in the office and efficient. No need to cluster OS with 'junk features'. i believe an office tool must be modeled to help us do work with fewer clicks.

  • Mortecha

    They bought Skype for 8.5B, but they are pushing Teams for W11. I suspect Teams uses a lot of Skype's functionality under the hood so the acquisition was more of a technology grab, I've always thought of Teams as being more business related too so it's a bit strange to see the family oriented aspect of it. It's weird to think of communication with family as Teams oriented. Regardless Telegram and WhatsApp seem more natural for this. Regarding the Android apps, instead of going through Amazon, they should of just bit the bullet and worked directly with Google.

    if Microsoft had integrated MS Teams and Skype together and form a single app with the essence of both the platforms it would look dope in my humble opinion

    Bro I have asus tuf gaming laptop with AMD ryzen 9 4900 and rtx 2060 . Will it (Windows 11) work my laptop?.. Will the app and games from windows 10 works in windows 11? Is it worth to update from Windows 10.


    Windows vista was the greatest of that time. It was the first window to offer Window Aero (transparency). The people who already had xp hated vista becoz of their jeleousy that they bought xp

  • Dutchcaveman

    I reinstalled Windows 10, I liked the 11 preview. Though it was a bit of a pain with the context menu, like at this moment it ain't customisable. Also some things don't seem to function correctly yet without internet, for example searching in the start menu. And searching in control panel, is never finding anything I look for. Besides that somethings don't really seem to work, and somethings not in the way I expected. I really like how the os can be set in dark mode. Will give it an try again when the final version will be available, but for now I'll pass.

    Windows 11 looks really good honestly I've had it for a few weeks now and it runs great! Although there haven't been that many noticable differences between it and windows 10.

    Microsoft are sort of competing against themselves with Teams and Skype.

  • Sumisukyo

    I love this new look for windows and the fact it can run android apps is exactly why I bought a windows surface... Except. Why. just WHY, did they make it so my brand new surface can't install windows 11.

    Coming for the holiday season, eh? More like coming pre-installed on computers, Intel hopes you will buy for Christmas. The actual update for those small number of users (The 4%) won't be available til;l February or March. Skip Windows 11. Don't buy a new PC if you can't meet the requirements. Boycott the blatant attempt to get Billion PCs scrapped and replaced.

  • Patrick Wingert
    Patrick Wingert

    Let's see 96% of all PCs on the planet cannot meet the security requirements of windows 11. That's about a billion machines out of the 1.36 billion machines on the planet. I own 11 of those machines. The place I work has four hundred of those machines. So I am telling people to ignore windows eleven. Don't buy a new PC to run it. It is another Microsoft failure that will be obsolete before it gets 5% she of the OS survey.

    Nice video. But you have an error making the count of the Good-Bad cycle. You missed 2 things, , 8.1 is different from windows 8, and windows 10. Windows 8.1 liked to the users a lot more than Windows 10 and 8. The compataibility and stability, and security demandings of Windows 8.1 made it the closest to the universal usability of Windows 7. so,. (.1 is the good, and 10, as general opinions is a shit. So now, The cycle continues

    Maybe my Yoga's touch screen will work again under Win11 and I won't have Windows Ink fight with my Wacom tablet on my workstation. I disliked the glassy interface before, and prefer a flat UI. I hate the recently minimalized scrollbars and it looks that that annoyance lives on. I don't see anything very interesting here, so I'll hope for better HID handling under the hood.

    Love the fact that android apps now run on desktop since it's easier to edit & then post images/videos on desktop than from mobile. So now posting to IG, Facebook, etc. will be a lot easier. That said, i wonder if apps like TikTok, IG on windows will have all the features of the mobile versions for native posting when turning on the webcam 🤔 I'm jumping with joy at all the possibility now! 🤸🤸🏄🏂

    Sorry hate when things get changed, and for the most part the only reason they get changed is so design engineers can keep their jobs. Sorry I was happy with Windows 2000 NT GUI. I could control, and create folders for applications, and data. I would not have a problem if everything was intuitive. Will have to wait and see.

    If these Android apps are being populated from the Amazon App Store, I take it that means that Google's apps won't be available? For example, I use Google Play Books to manage my ebook collection. If I can't install that, then this isn't very useful. Can we sideload apps from an APK?

    tku - I was apprehensive about windows 11, due to some difficulties I had with old vs new. Furthermore, I do like the idea of moving into windows 11, now that you have told me about the good, the down-side and the side deals with Amazon and Microsoft etc. Subsequently, I do like the idea that it's going to house some android apps (like tik tok) which could be good. Re: Microsoft teams, I am a student at university, we use ZOOM in Australia, New Zealand etc 100% for uni, school, high-school, meetings, chit-chats with families etc, etc - therefore, Microsoft teams in my opinion may have difficulty converting us students at all levels and our families and friends into 'teams'. Tks for your great videos, you really help a beginner like me understand more about computers and their software. tku! :) :)
