Windows 11 First Impressions

It looks like I will finally get started to make some Windows 11 images after getting a few more things from Microsoft. Apparently the Windows 10 National Academic version has reached EOL (End of License) so it cannot be purchased, and if someone wants the NA product they need to get the Windows 11 version.

Hi Guys!

With the crap coming in Windows 11....I have a hard time deciding what the future might be regarding Windows.....

I would even go as far as saying that Windows 11 is worse than Windows 10 when that was released...

I am so fed up with the replies one gets from Microsoft...."we have designed a more logical operating system that makes more sense to the user2.....as far as the user is concerned...Microsoft doesn't give a crap and we all know that....not news....Microsoft doesn't seem to want to listen to the user at all...and every small concession from them is rewarded with something worse...?!!

Typical scenario at the moment (that isn't ever likely to change): Customers daughter lives in England was experiencing problems with Windows 11 and some games... Can I help from Sweden...   I would say 85 to 90% of my customers would not have been able to fix this... I checked at Lenovo for info regarding the release of the computer and what OS it came with and IF there were drivers available for Windows 11.....nada(not Lenovo's fault...just because of everything else happening in the world - they hadn't caught up with the latest crap from Microsoft) My customer was of the opinion that the computer came with Windows 11 - but after several emails back and forth she accepted that she might have upgraded by mistake.. I proceeded with the help of Lenovo to guide my customer with downloading a recovery image and creating a USB to fix her computer....I really thought that it would be tough - but the next email I receive is with windows 10 back on the computer and her games were and are working well again...

I give praise where it is due and she exceeded all of my customers in this adventure...

Mind you I was worried by her reply after a few days of testing... "It must have been something do with Windows 11...I suppose?" 

I kept my reply to "Yes Windows 11" did have that heart to say any more on the subject!

I shall watch from the distance, I won't try to predict the future.

i'll be staying on win7 as long as i can get hardware for it
with this dark future in mind, later it will most likely be Linux with win7 in virtual machine

but new versions of windows ? - no thanks, its been downhill ever since 8 came out,
and if they didn't give a bleep for so long, they never will ...

Didn't think I'd read something like this on VOGONS. :D

Same here - I don't mind Win 11. And I think that's generally what you'll find in the real world, you know, outside of retro tech forums. People don't like or dislike Windows. It's simply the Main Program that runs all of their other crap, so they tend to forget about it. And with the "Windows" name not even appearing on startup anymore, really young users may not realize that it's even there! All of that boring memory management, processor scheduling and thread spawning (which I'm sure they're totally aware of)? Why, that's probably being handled by the Dell itself! What the hell's an operating system?

Now I'm really going to fan the flames.

Not only do I think that modern Windows is a fine OS, I also don't mind modern office suites, browsers, modern games and their modern launchers, etc. In fact, I prefer all of that new "bloated" software *. Yes, it all updates in the background & probably consumes a billion times more MIPS, FLOPS and RAM than the old stuff, but I don't notice it, so I don't care. It just works, and that is super great. The horsepower's there, so why not take advantage of it? Both hardware and software developers have worked their butts off to get us to where we are now, so jeez, why not cut them just a bit of slack? They more than effin' deserve it.

*By the way, I still try to get in at least a couple hours of DOS-Win98 gaming every weekend (on real hardware, to boot)! So please, don't take my VOGONS posting permissions away just yet. 😀

They do have a point, though. People tend to forget that outside of a small percentage, nobody cares what their Windooz is like, as long as it runs what they want to run.

Much as I dislike Windows 10 and 11, I have to agree:  most people don't care what OS their computer is running, as long as it lets them run whatever programs they want to run.

How else does Microsoft get away with all the Telemetry, forced updates and other junk?  Because most of their user base either doesn't know the difference or doesn't care!

Either way, they just blindly accept whatever MS dishes out because newer is ALWAYS better!

Yes, some are even excited because it looks different. Of course, these same folks think that options that used to be there are useless and nobody needs them.
