I already installed it, so far so good.
you got that right. this has been my experience too.
yeah, i like that too.
i believe most of these issues will be ironed out in the upcoming updates.
I actually have images of both 10 and 11... in 5 minutes I can restore either version and use it as long as I like. I keep both updated each month... best of both worlds...
Why not just dual-boot?
Carry on as before which means no Windows other than for specific apps in legacy versions. No version of Windows gives me the degree of control I want and almost any Linux distro does it without trying. No looking back at this point.
I believe I will stay with Windows 10. I still use Microsoft Office 2003 and it is working fine. Has anyone who has changed to Windows 11 have Microsoft Office 2003? If so, doe it still work? I have not found a site that will tell me what programs are compatible with Windows 11, anyone know of such a site. And, I have heard that Windows 11 is backward compatible has anyone heard this?
If W7 would run on my Ryzen machine, I'd be running that. But because AMD decided to block it, I'm stuck with W10...
Yeah, I was thinking of that possibility today, but I think it just complicates things too much for me... it's easier to just keep the versions in separate images and restore as needed.
I used to dual boot 7 and 10...
I'm using Win11 and I can't see any performance difference. I'm multi-booting with Win10 but I won't go back to Win10 unless Win11 malfunctions.
My Surface Book that I have had since June 2016, gave up the ghost in July.
It's low-powered replacement, for the moment, is a HP laptop:
Processor: AMD 3020e with Radeon Graphics 1.20 GHz
Installed RAM: 8.00 GB (5.88 GB usable)
I see an Alder Lake future, dawning for me!
And the funny thing is that I'm running an AMD Phenom II X4 Quad-Core 945 processor in that Win7 PC.
Staying with Win 8.1 Pro. This old 2015 era laptop won't take Win 11 anyway.
I'm planning to buy a new machine which will come with Win 11. My current computer is 8 years old and not eligible for Win 11, my wife has already shown interest in it as it works really well with Win 10...I like new systems, and the required security features for Win 11 plus MS Defender will make it difficult for malware to break through, although as I have mentioned in other posts, I haven't had a single detection (or FP) in many years. I think MS is aiming to secure corporate machines against ransomware attacks which have become the bane of the corporate world.
Since I don't have problems on my Windows 10, I will wait for a while and update it with next feature update if there won't be big problems reported. So for me there will first be Windows 10 21H2 update and then Windows 11. If I'm not tempted to do it before...
Windows 11 on my home desktop. I have Windows 11 on my work desktop. Fortunately I meet the hardware requirements. But in my company overall, Windows 10 for the foreseeable future.
I upgraded last night on an unsupported laptop. The upgrade process was fairly quick, but after upgrading, the keyboard and touchpad were not working. I plugged in a mouse and keyboard and opened Device Manager. The touchpad driver and keyboard filter drivers had issues. I was able to get the keyboard working by uninstalling the keyboard filter driver and then scanning for hardware changes in Device Manager. To get the touchpad working, I had to update the driver. After that, Windows 11 was working fine, and I'm getting Windows Updates.
I upgraded my Surface Pro 3 at the end of August. I was surprised by the incident free upgrade and how smooth and fast Windows 11 ran. I was expecting problems. When I got the final version in late September, I decided I would keep it.
This wasn't a reprise of the Vista fiasco.
I have an old laptop from 2011. It doesn't have TPM, Secure Boot, and an unsupported processor for Win 11.
First, I'll try Rufus to clean install Win 11 and see how it goes.
I'll update here.
So maybe more like Windows 8.0?
Use Win 10 + Linux, and if by 2025, the state of Windows still looks like Win 11 or worse, then I'll move my workloads to Linux, and keep a Win 10 box just for gaming until things stop working. After that, we will see. While I do depend on Windows for gaming and office primarily, I am starting to consider making sacrifices, because I have no intention of using something like Win 11.
any news on its release date?
No exact date that I'm aware of. I expect it to be released soon.
I have Office 2007 and may encounter similar issues if I install W11. See these links:
I've no interest whatsoever in following the herd and updating for the sheer sake of it, which includes ignoring scaremongers / shills and those obvious paid stooges, writing reviews (that include scare mongering about you have to update or big bad people hiding in the shadows will steal and destroy your data).
I see it simply as "if the local businesses, colleges, universities etc doesn't play the update game, so why should I?".
I just got it installed on a PC at work that meets all of the requirements except CPU. Nobody had used it in 2 years so no loss if there are issues. It seems fine so far, runs better than 10 did. If it seems ok for a while I may upgrade the other machine with the same specs. As for the ones that meet none of the requirements, I don't feel great about those.
