Some sites are saying 3pm gmt. Other sites are saying 4pm gmt. Fuxake..

Given that Win11 leaked the other day, I'm fairly sure everyone can guess what they're about to announce.

|update| Think it's 4. Still double checking! |update|

Completely unwatchable. The stream is buffering every few seconds.
I'll be watching it later once it's upped to YouTube.

"Windows 10 will be the last numbered version of Windows."
"Here's Windows 11."

The event was basically..
"Windows is still windows. We've tried to make it look a bit more like Mac, added another attempt at an AppStore, and also gone full-blown Steam clone. But otherwise it's still Windows."
And then another 6 hours of them telling you windows is great for developers.

It's cool, because it looks like MacOS and doesn't have its own identity any more.

Yeah same. Still rocking the tried and true Windows 7 Ultimate, here. I've never been a quick convert to the newest and brightest. Heck, I still use all the older versions of Windows on my vintage PC's and laptops.

Maybe used Windows 8 once, if I even got it installed, hard to remember.

My dad uses Windows 10, which he had me install and set up for him but after that fiasco, I think I will never use 10; so 11 is right out. (Funny thing is, with my dad's Windows 10 install, I did everything I could to "revert" it back to a Windows 7 type experience, and remove as much Windows 10 as I possibly could.

Besides, with as many distros of Linux as there are, as well as fun other non-Linux based OS's to play with; I don't really need to stick with Microsoft's future experiments.

The problem with every Windiows since Win7 is that any changes you make, M$ can (and does) undo at their whim. I'm forever having to sort out some of my Win10 preferences that M$ doesn't like/want. eg lock screen. I keep turning it off. I disable it in the menus. Every single fucking update it turns it all back on again so I have to enter a password that I deliberately preferenced out.

"Automatic updates?"
"No thanks."
"OK, you got'em!"
"I said "No!""
M$ says "Yes!"

And it goes on...

Why do M$ eve bother with preferences if they can fuck them up and/or ignore them at their leisure?

Running Android apps on Win11? I have an Androiod phone for that. Windows - stick with Windows stuff. And remove the bloat.

My works computer just updated it's windows 10 ( i try to keep them all switched off btw) and it greeted me with a shit load of windows upon load up..Xbox options, etc ...all over my desktop. Just another lil annoyance.


I guess that's the reason they're called "Preferences" now, as opposed to "Settings". That lil semantic shift changes a lot of things.

Looks to me more like it's trying to be ChromeOS than MacOS...
