Why Windows 11 Is Still Unnecessary: 6 Month Re-Review
At the launch of Windows 11 Mark said you could be fine skipping it for now, but after 6 months of using it he still feels like it’s unnecessary. Windows 11 is still playing catch up to Windows 10 in so many ways, even after plenty of updates. To be fair though, there are signs that Microsoft is fixing some of Windows 11’s most obvious flaws. Hopefully with more time (and some promised features) it will be the obvious upgrade.

You can. Move the task bar like windows 10
Microsoft envies Apple. Windows 11 is their attempt to copy it. Customers? Who cares?
Instead of bettering the os, and making it less eating power and less bulky, they add unnecessary and more.
Why can't they just make something with all their old features as an option and then all the new stuff as an option and be done with it
Direct storage sounds promising at least. And naturally, the thread director.
i WILL NEVER SWITCH TO WINDOWS 11
My fix to all of these issues in Win11? … use win10.
Windows 11 is the step 1 to Windows as a service and where YOU become the product and not Windows.
I still miss all the colors of windows 8.1. Also it didn't try to merge the touch interface and the desktop ui, like win 10.
Also on a touch device, the animations and swipe gestures of 8.1 are waaaaay better, and still feels snappier then 10.
I also tried 11 and it felt more steps were taken backwards then forwards. They just changed things for the sake of changing them, and not for making them better.
Im not going to lie. I have never rolled back on an operating system before, rather than learning it. I tried 11 for a few solid months. I'm a younger open minded individual, and I hated windows 11 so much the media creation tool is working as we speak to bring me back to 10. They even changed the right click menu. THE RIGHT CLICK MENU. You can't mess with 20+ year old muscle memory like that. All the nonsense changes in combo with 11's completely broken power management on my Thinkpad have sent me running back to 10.
did not update yet. Not updating ever.
Why doesn't anybody have the balls to call a POS new version a downgrade?
Still better than original windows 8
can you create another video about windows 11 right now ? the newest video about windows 11 i found is for 5 months ago i want to know windows 11 right now fixed they problems and upgrading it is worth it now ?
i wait to next Windows release, for me Windows 11 is worst Windows ever after Windows me.
The only reason I still use windows is because i have to use it for gaming (MS Flight sim, COD, BF2042…). Don't take control panel away.
I still have no clue why Microsoft even had to release a new OS!!!
"why isn't there a single unified menu". This is the crux of the problem throughout windows 11.
One thing I really miss in W11 is the ability to right click on an icon in the start menu to show recent files from the get go. Add to that there is now no easy way to connect my Bluetooth headset when needed. In W10 you click on the notifications bottom right of the screen and double click on the Bluetooth icon. In W11 I have to go back through settings every time.
So bad software compatibility, I again switch to my windows 10 , it's superb.
Definitely unnecessary for login using Ms account. People need to use tricks to setup local account in windows 11. Biggest problems it 64 bit only. What about my old 32 bit apps that work perfectly on windows 10 isn't for windows 11.
They've been farking up the Start Menu for years. The problem is if you pay someone to redesign things, they will redesign them regardless of whether they need redesigning. No interior designer ever said, "your house looks great as it is". The Start/Taskbar is a deal breaker for me. I find having the taskbar on the left far more ergonomic for me personally (copied it from a colleague at work and instantly loved it). Modern monitors are wide and I hate wasting screen height on it, but I don't like hiding it either.
Somebody needs to go to wherever UI (ooh sorry, UX) designers go to school and tell them that removing options so everyone has to do what they themselves like is not design. It's just being an ass.
Windows 11 doesn't even have folder thumbnails is ridiculous. Its like Micro$oft HAS to have a terrible windows followed by a decent windows followed by a terrible windows.
Windows < Linux
Like Microsoft said, Windows 10 is the last OS you need to install on your PC. With Windows 11, Microsoft was just testing you to see if you were listening.
People use the Windows 10 start menu?
In the whole video you've stated nothing but fax
Recently bought a new PC the other day and completely wiped windows 11 off it and replaced it with windows 10 after having it on for a total of 5 minutes, hated the fact that it was like crappleware.
Windows 11 wants new drivers or it doesn't work
still prefer Xp
Window 11 is basicly like window Vista,fail product,but i strongly feel Window 12 is promising
Good video. Been using Windows 11 for the past six months. It is one louder than Windows 10. But, seriously, I still think the Start Menu is a bad idea and that the Win 3.11 icons were way more intelligent.
Awesome. This is what i needed to know.
Is Windows 11 the new Vista?
I thought Windows 10 was going to be the last version anyway?
Which devices is he using?
What about 6 month after, 3 month after?! 😛
I wish i could go back to windows 10.
What about performance? Memory management? I don't care about photos, snap-chat or paint. What about Microsoft moving away from a "windows" platform and pumping all their technology into the browser edge? Not much of a review dude. I'm on the Microsoft Insider Program too. So what? Let's all complain about Microsoft! Great! Surprised your editor even let you post this.
It's slowly becoming ios…
My windows 11 doesn't update anymore and then the windows update troubleshooter has an error trying to fix an error? lol and the solution to 'fix' it just takes you all around the houses and the problem still persists, so i just don't update anymore, fixed! lol
The only time I’ll ever use Windows 11 is to write a Live USB of Fedora Linux when I get a new laptop.
1 minute and 47 seconds in and I've already been convinced to stick with windows 10 on the new hardware I just got. Good time saver.
The only reason for Win11 is a modern web browser. That is the only reason I have been upgrading since Windows 2000.
I just recently purchased a new desktop PC with Windows 11 and I love the new OS. I never cared much for the Vista/Windows 8/Windows 10 block of Microsoft operating systems. Windows 11 feels more like Windows XP which IMHO was Microsoft's best OS.
Windows 11 sucks ass. Absolute ass.
Windows 11: Switching people to Linux since 2021.
I switched to Zorin Core. You can adjust the taskbar to look like Win11's but with a real start menu.
