Do you folks like the new

Do you folks like the new task manager layout? I don't particularly care for it. The colors (light or dark scheme) don't look right.

Still on win10 1909 (18363.815). Probably be this winter's project to update to 11.

Have you tried going to settings, windows updates and then click check for updates to force the download?

Haven't installed it yet,

Haven't installed it yet, but will. I have my feature updates to only automatically install way out in the future. This allows me to install it when I'm ready and when it's known to be stable, although I have to manually download it then install it.

Yes, I always try it every week on my all machines. Looks like they did not roll it out in Canada yet.

Nope...

Installed it and almost immediately went back to Windows 10. Until such time as they put back the ability to "ungroup" items on the taskbar this is a no go for me.

Check out. ExplorerPatcher is an Open Source portable executable that lets you customize the Windows 11 Start Menu, Taskbar, System Tray, File Explorer, and more. https://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/explorerpatcher.htm...

^^ Explorer patch makes win11 tolerable. I also run the decrapifier script on new installs.

questions

I'm still on:

Edition Windows 10 Home
Version 21H2
Installed on ‎6/‎27/‎2020
OS build 19044.2075
Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.4180.0

My understanding is Microsoft will continue support until October of 2025. I was resistant to upgrade to 10, now have the same apprehension in going to 11.

My questions.
How many of you switched to 11 from 10 and found programs that no longer would work?
How many have had a good experience with 11?

Is it really worth migrating to?

I mean if it ain't broke don't fix it right, which is why I'm still with 10. I'm also afraid my hardware might be on the lower end of being good enough to run 11 smoothly.

I installed Windows 11 right after the release and have been very happy with it. The only thing I have added is Open Shell to give me the look of the old windows. Have used Open Shell since Windows 10. More info here https://www.minitool.com/news/open-shell-windows-11.html . I am not a gamer so I can't speak on that. For every day use I see nothing that different then what I had on Windows 10 except maybe a little faster. Both HP combo printers work on 11 just like 10. You have the option to go back to 10 if you don't like it. Before you install 11 you will have to meet the requirements for installation. The learning curve is almost non existent. Bottom line you are getting a new Windows for free that hopefully will be around for a while.

Just what I have been looking for

I have W11 running on an old incompatible LT, but it seems to be running just fine. I had to change a couple of files to make that happen.

Now I can try out ExplorerPatcher and OpenShell and see if that makes W11 more usable for me.

I switched from 10 to 11 Home when Windows Update offered it, not by going through the hoops to download it before WU presented it. That gave me a bit of time to read the reviews from others leaving me to expect it to be an easy task. I did not do a clean install of Win 11 but did the OS update on my PC keeping my programs and data.

None of my older programs failed to work with Win 11.

I call it a good experience although, without Win11, I expect I'd be just as happy with continued use of Win 10.

Thanks to all who offered their experience.
