    I just find it the same as Windows 10... but rounder...

    The new configurable settings from the system tray are cool.  Not so fond of the new explorer where by default they have changed the menu items for icons.
    We should all probably bear in mind more when posting on here (and I don't exclude myself from this) that the guitar world is very small, the Fretboard is quite well known, and it is not uncommon at all for the subjects of our posts to read them...

    I haven't seen it but I hate it already.  I would have happily stayed on 7 if I could.

    I haven't seen it.  I need to turn on the TPM stuff in my BIOS if I want to install it.

    I'll wait a couple of months at least.

    Not much has changed really, but I like it a lot.  While it's still missing some small features from Windows 10 - drag on to apps on taskbar is the main one for me - it's cleaner, seems more responsive, and has finally sorted out the Settings page to give a more cohesive experience.

    The new window arrange modes that are accessed by hovering over the maximize button and window groups are brilliant.

    I don't like the thin highlights on context menus (right-click on the waste basket).

    I hadn't noticed that before but you're right, the context menu on the desktop system icon are different to everything else.  I've been using W11 since the first Dev release, and they have been rectifying discrepancies with that sort of thing all the time, so it's possible that's in line to get sorted.

    EDIT : It's been fixed in build 22454 apparently so will filter through eventually.

    Seems very stable so far. The one thing that does annoy me is the new right click menu. Cut/Copy/Paste have been in the same position since window 3.1.
    Now replaced by icon, however these can either be on top of the menu, at the bottom or hidden behind the More features sub menu. Not consistent and takes a little bit longer.

  • I'm interested in the Windows 11 thread director. I'm curious how it will affect audio and 3D production.

    I like Japanties. Not the forum Road Warrior. Trumpette until I die. Dog enthusiast with my hubby @Heartfeltdawn. It is prompted by a number of his posts that, in our joint opinion, were inconsistent with the principles that we set out in the forum charter.

    I'm pleased for the people I do business with that 11 is out as it will stir up some trade for them, but I've come to hate 10 with a passion and aren't exactly keen to investigate 11 myself. MS had a wonderful OS in 7 and just destroyed it to jump on the touchscreen band wagon and have never really got back to a great non touch GUI.

    Same, but it's my understanding that it needs a 12th gen Intel processor and I'm not looking to upgrade for a long time yet.  My 9th gen is more than adequate for my needs right now.

    I've got an AMD 5950X here, but I'm more curious about how it will affect other people; might be that my work needs to incorporate some changes to take full advantage. But it's too early to tell and I don't know enough about it yet.

    If it was new I'd agree with you. But it's old dog shit served up as "new" dog shit.

    So what's your beef other than context menus?  I genuinely can't see anything wrong that really warrants that sort of reaction?

    It's an absolutely pointless "upgrade". The minimum hardware requirements, TPM 2.0 mandatory, interface that's a confusing mess, Home version requires an MS account, more privacy tracking, ad-centric, the desperate bid to push Edge as default browser...it brings absolutely nothing to the party.

  • My least favourite thing about it is that there does not seem to be a way to display the time/date in the task bar on the second screen.

    Ah yes forgot the multi screen issue. So you click on the start button in the second screen. Click on the search bar and the menu closes. You can only search on the primary screen.

    I see it as Microsoft finally throwing some of the legacy stuff out of the window in order to improve the platform going forward.  They've often been criticised for not doing this in the past, but are finally being bold enough to deal with it.  Apple have done/do many of the things you mention above for many years, especially minimum hardware requirements and forced obsolescence.

    So, picking on  "interface that's a confusing mess", what's confusing?

    I'm in no rush, I'll let everyone else find the bugs :)
