Makes you think back to the IE times and miss-use of markt position of OS. Bundling 'third party' apps... First party in this case.Anybody else notice Microsoft Teams is being shoved down your throat in Win 11? Don't get me wrong, my company mission is tightly bundled with Teams and I use it every day. Great cross platform support, but how about turning down the volume M/S?
How much different is it than 10 after all. The forum shows I am posting from a Win 10 system. This is an up to date Win 11 system. I don't use Edge.
This is the never ending push from Microsoft starting with Win 8. The goal is to have one unified O/S and GUI. It's still a mess IMO. Microsoft sees the processing power of smartphones grow every few months as well as the display quality. Microsoft is trying to position an equal or better solution to Apple's product line. I am sure M/S board cries every time they look at Apple's bottom line. Unfortunately even the uniqueness of Apple products is being eroded, look at the low cost Chromebook based products being adopted by school systems once a stalwart of Apple. Chromebook users are more familiar with the Windows GUI vs IOS's, a double blow to Apple. It's going to be interesting how this unification project progresses at M/S. Stay tuned.I know this is an old thread, but I really tried to get along with Winders 11 on a new laptop. Just not gonna happen. I nuked it, cloned my precious meticulously groomed Winders 10 (No telemetry, Cortana, Edge, updates, Xbox and all the rest of the crapola), and I now have an even speedier computer with the features I want and need. The old laptop was physically worn out. It's sitting on a shelf running my security system, a trusted old friend.
Windows 11 just looks too foofoo - warm and fuzzy looking if you will.
If I had wanted an Apple I would have bought an Apple.
