    Not sure tbh, it wouldn't surprise me.

    We are holding off installing Windows 11 by default until they sort the performance and other issues out.
    It's like every Microsoft OS release, it takes them a good month or two of patching to get it working right lol.

    No real reason not to stick with W10 for now.
    Unless you going to buy a Alderlake CPU and Z690 mobo next month, then it makes sence.
    But I've not upgraded just for the sake of upgrading.

    What do you want Win 11 for? Are you a gamer? If you just want the looks I expect there will be updates for that. it's more likely your CPU will bottleneck you before Windows 10 is a problem.
