      Last I checked, no. It's one of several reasons I'll remain on 10.

        no.

        you can get the win10 taskbar+explorer context menu + other things with this patcher thingy
        https://github.com/valinet/ExplorerPatcher
        Microsoft should still be ashamed of themselves for win11, but at least for now its not completely impossible to reclaim some of the lost functionality.

      You can change pretty much all the UI stuff to be like 10. Some of it requires using regedit though.

    I think it's the best version of Windows yet, do keep in mind I haven't reinstalled it in three years since it came out and I've been on a local account installation of Education with group policy tweaks on it and with EU country as region, so I don't interact with 99% of the enshitification. I love how minimalist and clean it looks, helps me focus on getting shit done, and it's very "just werks" and has compatibility with literally everything just like W10 did. My favorite part are the new ms apps, I fricking love Notepad/Paint/Photos/Snipping Tool/Powershell/Terminal/Clock/Media Player and the fact it has 7z built in now. All my apps that I used to use before like Notepad++/PaintNet/JPEGView/VLC are replaced with first party shit that's auto updated through the store with a single click and generally takes little space and doesn't have any dependancy issues. Some based vidya improvements to windowed mode, autohdr, and gamemode are nice that give better performance overall especially on newer hardware. It's really fricking kino, I think in the future people will consider this the Windows 7 v2

    Might be plecebo but I think games ran better.
    If you don't have modern everything hardware you'll likely get a shitter experience, though.

    My only gripe is i had to turn off and tweak a million things for it to leave me alone.

        Passthru is some kind of bizarre magic though. There really is no performance hit even though it makes no sense.
        The only thing I can guess is that a bunch of telemetry gets stymied and fails which results in performance gains that offset the losses, it's the only thing that could possibly make sense.

        Not will always. You know why games run that way right? Because of the design of the games software, not anything intrinsic to windows itself. If tommorow developers agreed to develop game solely for macos games would run the best on mac.

    It's slower than windows 10

    • 1 month ago
      Anonymous

      I wish it weren't so fricking slow. It's like every UI action takes a solid 3 - 5 seconds to load, and sometimes it doesn't even load the first time I click.

      Explorer has never felt so slow and clunky, like navigating feels like everything has a half second delay of loading. Makes me want to scream

    yeah it's fine. It's not perfect, but it's decent. I like it a bit better than windows 10. There's a few defaults I had to disable though, like the new context menu was annoying, and I uninstalled a few apps I didn't want, but it only took like 10 minutes

    Has microsoft or other releases data on how many people are still on windows 10 vs 11?

    • 1 month ago

      It's mostly some businesses and a few IQfy schizos who are still on 10.
      Everyone is gradually moving to 11, and newer prebuilt computers have 11, undoubtedly.
      At the end of the day, 11 is mostly just 10 with a minor facelift. 11 is also supposed to be better suited to machines with e-cores, too, than 10.

    No, not really. It's basically a UI downgrade from 10, which is quite 'impressive' since the so-called modern UI from 10 is shit in and of itself.

            Some people want to run programs or games that only run on windows.
            Not everyone has the knowledge or the time or the will to tinker, which is unavoidable even on "just werks" distros, especially if you're trying to run .exes.
            The botnet in windows is a big downside indeed (which some people don't really care about for whatever reason), but linux and macos have their own downsides as well, so it really comes down to the magnitude of all the individual pros and cons for you and your circumstances, and which choice ends up aligning the best with what you want.

    Unless installing and using any OS has become trivial, yes because until you're jaded you're a noob and that's no good.

    The way to find out is never to ask, that's noobish. Throw it in a VM and figure out what YOU care about for YOUR use case.

    Windows versions should only be swapped on an as-needed basis. At the moment, 11 doesn't really offer much over 10 for most people. People on 10 are likely to skip it for 12.
    Upgrading OS's is also a pain in the ass since it fricks with all your settings and organization. It's something that you'll end up taking a whole day to fully settle into, hence why so many are reluctant. Why bother?
    When 12 comes along and gives a silver bullet to 10 like 10 gave to 7 with its Dx12, then you'll see a mass change-over, but not to 11. This has been the trend since XP.

    Windows 11 pro has been really solid the last year for me. Con is you have to uncheck 500 settings for privacy, etc... but once you get it under control it works fine. People are definitely drama queens about it. I also use my ms account and have a frick ton of "bloat" installeed, because i don't really game on my laptop (PS5 and Series X for that), and I just installed a 2tb ssd so why not. I'm not even remotely pressed for space.
