Windows 11 is what you’d refer to as an “version 1.0” version that means it’s only beginning its journey, and although there are many great features to be found, there’s many things that aren’t there (especially on that Taskbar) which long-time Windows users might have trouble with. Microsoft has succeeded in its mission of simplifying what is the most basic Windows UX, but at the expense of functionality that users consider crucial in the workflows.If you’ve read the review and haven’t considered any of the issues mentioned as a major issue I’m convinced that Windows 11 is going to be a great choice for you. It’s not slow, unresponsive or glitchy when I’ve used it. It’s ready for commercial useand I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every moment of using this OS. I’ll never go back to Windows 10.However it is a good idea to use your Taskbar on top of your screen or you don’t like the idea of needing to click additional times to access an option which was previously accessible with just one click, Windows 11 is not going to be the right choice for you right now. Windows 11 prioritizes simplicity, sometimes to the detriment of hiding functions in menus or in the Settings application.
WINDOWS 11: THE BOTTOM LINE
I love Windows 11. It’s refreshing for Windows that tries to eliminate a lot of the previous UX to create an ultra-modern simple, fluid, and easy interface. I believe it’s successful in achieving this although it’s not completely perfect. Users who are power users or long-time Windows users will have to learn new habits and adapt to missing features in certain areas.I’m certain Microsoft will restore certain functions and features in the coming versions but I don’t believe they’ll bring back everything. I’m sure that the plan for Windows 11 in the future is easy and simple and will be more geared towards users who are more comfortable with how things operate via their smartphone and less to hardcore Windows super users who expect everything accessible with the click of a single-click.If you’re comfortable with this, Windows 11 is great. If not, keeping Windows 10 for another year will be the best option. Windows 10 is supported until 2025, so there’s not an need to rush to upgrade. In one year, or perhaps in two years Windows 11 is likely to be in a greater “complete” state and it’s possible to give it another try.Windows 11 is likely to be the most advanced version of Windows currently, however certain decisions Microsoft has made regarding Team Chat Widgets and setting default browser settings, and the ineffective dark mode and the lack of functionality of the taskbar are holding it back from being the best. We hope that the next version of Windows 11 fixes these issues Can You Board A Dog In Heat?
WINDOWS 11: MISCELLANEOUS
There’s some new features with Windows 11 that I’ve not had the chance to look into in this review, but I’d like to mention them. The first is that Windows 11 offers enhancements to Windows on PCs with ARM processors which include the ability to run 64-bit Intel applications. This opens the floodgates to most apps now being usable on Windows on ARM, though performance will depend on what ARM chip you’re using.AdvertisementMicrosoft has also introduced ARM64EC, a new application binary interface that increases the performance of apps to native speed while being interoperable with x64 apps. In essence, it allows developers to build bits of their application to ARM which will improve performance, and emulating the remainder of the app. This is great for those who cannot entirely recompile their application to run on ARM natively.Another exciting new feature in Windows 11 is support for graphic interfaces that are powered by Windows Subsystem for Linux 2. Windows Subsystem for Linux 2 (WSL2) which is an excellent option for developers who switch from Windows and Linux applications frequently basis.There’s as well a lot of security and performance enhancements as well as new gaming features, including the support of DirectStorage, DirectX12 Ultimate, and much more.
