    I would strongly consider delve into Linux, Manjaro is easy to install and allows you to change everything shall you wish.
    Doing it on the 6700HQ laptop atm after the new NVME and 3200C16 ram comes.
    PC already moved to Manjaro 2y now.
    Windows is not missed AT ALL!!!!

    Its a wider taskbar and come on, I have to right click the start button ONLY to get to the task manager, good old MS, "We know best", forget options. Same old poop different day.

    Insane stuff.
    TPM won't add that much security if any. Neither would a jump from a unsupported (?) 7700K or 7980XE to a 8700K like I have.
    What would add some security to Windows would be a better UI with easily accessible per app settings and a verbose mode for app activity, like Kaspersky Security for example.
    Unsure if I'll bother to upgrade. Only if there's some feature I decide I really need, which from my Win11 VM doesn't seem to be the case.

    Yes since most service from governement are ONLY online and need latest OS to be done (despite they officialy promote linux wich would be a better choise)
    Also everything get more expensive, we pay more tax, and the incoming stay the same (it's the main reason why i moved to a tax free country)

    And yes it is the sad reality of many country in Europe, it's not only in poor country of Africa as an exemple...
    It have a name btw: the digital divide

    Sure man, the new world order will take you by needing an 8th gen Core for Windows. Are you familiar with the term "scapegoating"? Instead of looking at our actual problems of taxation, inequality etc, people waste their energy with a bunch of bullshit. That's a proper conspiracy right there. Your life won't be taken over because a spyware won't be able to put itself between Windows and the UEFI.

    What in the actual frack. We are literally on the day of the Linux desktop. You have everything open source, and even open source alternatives for running tens of thousands of closed source programs. See WINE, Proton, and all the rest of the native Linux stuff. You didn't have a choice, but ironically you have a choice now, and yet you whine about it.

    Yeah, you should. What does "ostracized" means to you? Nadella sending your CPU to political exile in Siberia? What's wrong with you people. The rhetoric does sound familiar.

    It's stupid misdirected anger, while the world does change in the actually important parts around you.

    Microsoft should have put a hardware ceiling a long time ago, and no, because your hardware has a TPM, it doesn't mean you cannot do what you want with it. It's actually the opposite, only you can do what you want with it. Read about TPMs in the open source world. Want to complain about something? Complain about the AMD PSP and the Intel Management Engine, but these are not cool, and you can't use evangelist terms about them because most idiots don't even know what they do. FFS.

    The latest OS from Microsoft includes two though, so no, they will not need Windows 11 since Windows 10 still goes strong for some years.

    Tax free comes at a cost too.

    If anyone has 22000 installed on their "unsupported" system and has been receiving cumulative updates all this time, then it means microsoft are full of the shite.

    22000.100 is RTM and anyone using it should be moving to the beta channel now so they don't start getting 23000 builds etc.

    Windows 10 is supported until 2025. I suppose if someone cannot buy a new rig by then should stop using PC. 4 years are so long that you can even build an enthusiast grade rig if you save enough money month by month, year by year. 4 years remaining for the poor and crybabies. Live on.

    For us, it's clearly not a problem, but think that we represent 10%, maybe 20% of the PC users...
    Anyway M$ will step back at one point, like they have done with W10.
    Also W11 is really a kind of W10.5 or W10+ than a real new Windows from what i have seen.

    Doubt they will step back with the requirements for 11.
    As said, 10 still goes strong, it will get some nice new features including DirectStorage, besides the ability to choose between the 10 and 11 alike start menu.
