    No real reason, no, however there is fast becoming no reason not to switch. :p

    Yep. Its still clearly not finished but fair play to them.

    I had no real reason to switch but wanted to try it because I'm curious. Few little foibles so far but I like the new direction

    Both HWINFO and Core Temp seem to work fine, unless its lying to me in a way I ahvent noticed yet. Temps seem to be reported in line with what I would expect

    Not trying to be osx in a literal copycat sense, but in a trying to offer eye candy in a way that Apple have always done (and have always done better)

    I don't want to install this unless the temp software I use works like nzxt cam msi afterburner etc all work.

    If you actually like Windows 10/find it suited to your needs then Windows 11 does offer some advantages - they've somewhat decluttered/improved things like file explorer but in many respects it is still Windows 10 with a few extra software incompatibilities.

    I'm kind of sad to see they've not taken the design language of the new aesthetic to heart and worked it into all areas of the OS and spent some more time on the basic quality of life things as that is what the OS is needing the most IMO and the new aesthetic in concept is what a modern Windows should be - in practise they've just slapped it in not really understanding what they are working with :(

    I'll need to see if my pc is 'compatible' with windows 11 since anything after the 1909 update in 10 doesn't appear to be......:rolleyes:

    Apparently new build is enforcing TPM requirement within VM’s, so VMWare Workstation Pro on HyperV gen2.

    The TPM module I ordered back in June, just before the insane price hike ... apparently dispatched today. :D
