A little levity, perhaps?

I've spent some time reading and watching various Win11 reviews, hoping that it might be an exciting release, especially since we were told that Win10 would be the last MS OS - honestly I don't see a need for 11 at this point, and I'm sure MS will force us to install Win11 eventually.

I guess we'll have to wait and see what the final official Win11 OS has to offer???

I like to watch and learn what all the guinea pigs do with it first. Usually I won't install a Windows o/s until it has already been in circulation for years. (Not for myself anyway).*

*Edit. I'm sorry. That sounded snobbish. I do play around with new operating systems on PCs where I can afford to lose everything. When Windows 10 was in beta I played around with it via Windows Insider. When I tried to do roll back I had to contact Microsoft to get the job done because as far as Microsoft was concerned that o/s no longer existed. I'm not overly excited about Windows 11. Microsoft seems to have a pattern going: If the o/s does not run fast enough just throw away the tools to lighten the load. Methinks there's a limit to how much streamlining they can do and eliminating useful programs sounds more like a crooked bait and switch game to me than anything else. Admittedly, I'm not a hard core software geek. I relate to hardware better. Yet I am not worried if Windows users are going to be forced to cross over to Win 11. Linux has been working wonderfully for me lately and once I figure out how to network on Linux I won't be that Windows dependant.
