Geez, the GUI looks grotesque. Still never been a fan of the 10 UI either.
I've linked to it multiple times in other threads over the years.
It is a very real risk but sadly most people won't appreciate the implications until too late - many will likely even attack those expressing concerns until they end up on the receiving end of it.
Possibly October 11th this year.
For anyone who installed using the UUP conversion method, are you still able to join the dev channel in the insider section of windows update? Mine says to turn on optional diagnostic data, which it is. But still doesn't work :/
I had that error on legit Insider for months so much I had to use UUPdump and finally it was fixed so started getting offered on WU again but I always chose ISO and just clicked it to update.
Well that was time consuming to get win10 to download 11.. It wanted the "secure boot" enabled aswel and it took me hrs of scratching my head to work out why windows wouldnt boot when it was enabled... "Secure boot" only boots "GPT" drives and my boot drive was "MBR"....... So just started the dl of 11 now.
Nice little new feature, Windows 11 supports Dynamic Refresh Rates.
It can be enabled and tested now in the insider build
Installed it last night on the laptop, liking it so far but that could just be the initial freshness it has. Behind the UI, it's not a great deal different to 10 other than some settings being more difficult to find.
Sadly UUP wasn't able to download the files (tried both the cumulative update and the straight 220000.51) when I ran the compiler :/
Was trying to find a way to fix it, rather than nuke it.
Have now nuked it and it's broken my Insider account :'(
How long does it take to reboot? Is it an all day job like Windows 8/8.1/1
I just went the update route, took about an hour in total but will depend on download speed, CPU and drive speeds.
Whatever they release you will always get some people moaning or not liking it, been that way for decades so nothing will change in that situation.
The only thing I ask for is not to make it bloated, one thing I have notice over time is Windows seems to get more bloated with stuff and non useful features that they think you should have.
I would be very happy with a lean Windows gaming OS and use my other Linux PC for everything else.
Well, you can generally remove and disable a lot of bloat but it can take work. I dual boot work/gaming and the gaming one has minimal stuff installed other than launchers and games. I try to disable everything I dont need/use on that boot.
So far on W11(now my gaming boot) I have only removed all the widgets and then removed the widget icon. It doesnt seem too bad for bloat at first glance.
Tempted to give this a go .
I am seriously thinking of just sticking with W11 now, I'm not having any issues.
I may switch from the Dev to the Beta branch though (when a build eventually goes live on there).
Anyone else thinking of staying with W11 as a primary OS?
I haven't tried a great deal on it but it seems to work fine for my needs. Obviously, if you're using your machine for work or other important tasks it may be worth waiting a while.
That's why I installed it on the laptop first. I'll install it on my main rig when I next upgrade with a fresh reformat.
Tried this - added the ISO to my current ventoy USB Stick
Booted and installed fine on a HP 800 G1 Mini (i3-4160T/4GB Ram) - seems to run fine
Seems a bit rubbish if Zen isn't supported, the 8c16t chips are still pretty decent by modern standards. At least there is an upgrade path on AM4 I suppose.
Put it this way, the DELL version of factory reset's several times quicker than the windows one which takes an hour just to get %15 and all day/afternoon to do the rest.
