Why it matters: After months of internal previews, Microsoft released Windows 11 to the public. It's sleek, modern, and an absolute must for any Windows user (and it's free!) if we are to appreciate the company's truly valuable words. But is this really the problem? Even among our employees, opinions differ at least. Some of us have already upgraded to the new OS, and some, like me, haven't.
There are many things that Windows 11 brings to the table. Many users appreciate the new user interface (which also includes rounded corners) and think that virtual desktops will fall in love even more. And I love the idea of Snap Groups and Snap Layouts: As a regular multitasker, I use each new tool that simplifies the process.
Auto HDR is also, by far, a great all-in-one addition to the OS that gamers - at least those with HDR screens - will love. And what about DirectStorage, a feature Microsoft (eventually) promised to change the load time of a game like the Xbox. This can be a lot of fun, when the developers support it properly. The shortcut right-click menu is a sore point, and people aren't happy that they have to be signed into their Microsoft account to use Windows Home's Edition.
Personally, I tend to agree with Windows 11 opponents at the moment. Windows 11 still doesn't have enough unique features to satisfy me and I don't agree with all the changes. However, I am willing to change my way of thinking in the future.
Anyway, this is just my opinion. What we're looking for here are your thoughts on Windows 11. Planning to upgrade? Have you done this before? Why and why not? Let us know in the comments or comments below.Are you upgrading to Windows 11?
