Computers and Software : Giving windows 11 another try, will not revert this time, but why did

Giving windows 11 another try, will not revert this time, but why did

they even make it?

it's just windows 10 with a different look?

I mean every time they released a new version (except for vista) it was an improvement in function as well as style. But this is 10 with a centered taskbar, forward facing icons and round corners.

Smells like Ass in here

Re: Giving windows 11 another try, will not revert this time, but why did

Microsoft keeps urging me to convert. What stops me dead in my tracks is their disclaimer:
"Some properties will not be available."

It feels a tad sluggish, but they say it doesn't run as well on ryzens

You should have Intel.

I agree. I got this pc for a steal though. Next Time I'm gonna go with intel.

I think the some properties refers to eye candy like having a movable taskbar and such

I'd probably give it a year before you try it.

If I get pulled over, it better be a gay policeman riding on a unicorn.

Re: Giving windows 11 another try, will not revert this time, but why did

Thanks. I'll probably give it a lot longer than that. I don't totally trust change.

Re: Giving windows 11 another try, will not revert this time, but why did

I'm sticking with Windows 10, although they've never really improved on Windows 7. That was a perfect setup. Not too bloated and didn't have all the little crappy bits that 10 has.

Re: Giving windows 11 another try, will not revert this time, but why did

I'll disagree a little and say 8.1 was the best. But I see your point.

I never went there. Straight from 7 to 10.

Re: Giving windows 11 another try, will not revert this time, but why did

I have a co-worker who wont ever give up 7 even though they don't get security updates anymore

Re: Giving windows 11 another try, will not revert this time, but why did

I feel for them. I only gave up 7 because of the lack of security updates. Probably a good anti virus would do the job though.

Re: Giving windows 11 another try, will not revert this time, but why did

My super smart niece who works with computers told me I should buy a new computer for that very reason. So I did so in 2021, replacing my old 2010 computer.

Re: Giving windows 11 another try, will not revert this time, but why did

why new instead of just updating the OS?

not a criticism, but curious as to why you needed to upgrade? perhaps because of TPM and secure boot features of newer releases.

Re: Giving windows 11 another try, will not revert this time, but why did

Because of lack of security updates on the old one.

A good antivirus and not using cracked software or clicking on pop ups.

So did I, when I bought my new all in one wireless Dell Computer (which I LOVE!)

I have an HP, which I love!

I have an HP with AMD Ryzen 3 PRO 2100GE w/ Radeon Vega Graphics and I hate it.

It's a workhorse of a PC, but AMD sucks balls with it's lagginess. my older laptop with intel graphics runs smoother with only 4 gigs of ram.

I have been seriously considering an all in one when this one dies.

Re: Giving windows 11 another try, will not revert this time, but why did

All in ones are very cool! I especially like that there are only two wires, unlike the maze of wires on the old one.

Re: Giving windows 11 another try, will not revert this time, but why did

With 8, and I have been told 7 was the same, it ran very smoothly and booted fast even with my now deceased pc's specs of a mechanical hard drive and only 4 gb's ram. My newer pc has 8 gig's and I upgraded to a solid state drive, but I still boot to ten seconds of black screen.

Re: Giving windows 11 another try, will not revert this time, but why did

I guess it's nearly impossible to get everything you want from a computer. No matter what the specs are there's always going to be something that isn't quite the way you'd like it.
