We all new it would come.
Microsoft said so.
I believe this is the last iteration of Windows before this becomes a paid upgrade system, where it will not have a number anymore.
You will have to accept different upgrades on the fly (as in, it will make you download them).
As far as I'm concerned, I will not be upgrading any further than W10.
I looked at Windows 11 and I hate the UI, there are so many basic things you can't easily change to make it workable, it is made for tablets and possibly large smart-phones?
Which is great if you use a desk-top, like I do.
I've never been a gamer by anyone's stretch of the imagination (unless you include Solitaire or maybe Mah Johng), but a few of the young people I've spoken to are really livid at it's lack of performance if you don't buy the latest and greatest of Graphics card (this in itself is not easy these days) or CPU and RAM performance, you might be left out in the cold.
Sure Linux doesn't have a lot of games, but in my experience, after Windows 10 is sent to the dust-bin, that is the way I'm heading, I've used Linux for close to 20 years and it's never put me crook.
All of the so-called driver issues that used to pop up, ironed themselves out in the late 2000's, you can pretty much run most modern mother-boards, CPU's and RAM on Linux.
Yes it is a learning curve, but what isn't these days, with learning HMI interfaces, PLC's, you name it.
Linux is simple.
Has anyone taken the leap into Windows 11?
