    It’s amazing how similar it is to a Mac. Unique in its own way with the difference being trying to be different. Download the hybrid windows and macOS. Only problem is u have neither. Pros and cons no doubt, but until they create something new and noteworthy…. Like ground up new look, functionality , and ease of use, I shall choose to use Apple.

    Many people should be aware that online banking demands you have a clean pc or device to use it with in the first place. If that's not the case and something happens you are on your own. i don't even use online banking with my phone because of the intrusive apps who demand access to basically everything they don't need to be able to function, yest you have to agree or it wont work. Now that's the same with windows 11, try to get rid edge uninstall it, like anything else to find out next day it's all back, like edge don't use got rid of it and bam it's back in your face. Installed it self without warning or popups, you have no choice when you install windows 11 you have no control over your own pc, you have lost the battle for privacy and control of your personaly owned devices!!

    Looks Microsoft is moving away from productivity to entertainment based products. XP and windows 7 very productive in the office and efficient. No need to cluster OS with 'junk features'. i believe an office tool must be modeled to help us do work with fewer clicks.

    They bought Skype for 8.5B, but they are pushing Teams for W11. I suspect Teams uses a lot of Skype's functionality under the hood so the acquisition was more of a technology grab, I've always thought of Teams as being more business related too so it's a bit strange to see the family oriented aspect of it. It's weird to think of communication with family as Teams oriented. Regardless Telegram and WhatsApp seem more natural for this. Regarding the Android apps, instead of going through Amazon, they should of just bit the bullet and worked directly with Google.

    Windows vista was the greatest of that time. It was the first window to offer Window Aero (transparency). The people who already had xp hated vista becoz of their jeleousy that they bought xp

    I reinstalled Windows 10, I liked the 11 preview. Though it was a bit of a pain with the context menu, like at this moment it ain't customisable. Also some things don't seem to function correctly yet without internet, for example searching in the start menu. And searching in control panel, is never finding anything I look for. Besides that somethings don't really seem to work, and somethings not in the way I expected. I really like how the os can be set in dark mode. Will give it an try again when the final version will be available, but for now I'll pass.

    Coming for the holiday season, eh? More like coming pre-installed on computers, Intel hopes you will buy for Christmas. The actual update for those small number of users (The 4%) won't be available til;l February or March. Skip Windows 11. Don't buy a new PC if you can't meet the requirements. Boycott the blatant attempt to get Billion PCs scrapped and replaced.

    Patrick WingertPrije 6 dana

    Let's see 96% of all PCs on the planet cannot meet the security requirements of windows 11. That's about a billion machines out of the 1.36 billion machines on the planet. I own 11 of those machines. The place I work has four hundred of those machines. So I am telling people to ignore windows eleven. Don't buy a new PC to run it. It is another Microsoft failure that will be obsolete before it gets 5% she of the OS survey.

    Nice video. But you have an error making the count of the Good-Bad cycle. You missed 2 things, , 8.1 is different from windows 8, and windows 10. Windows 8.1 liked to the users a lot more than Windows 10 and 8. The compataibility and stability, and security demandings of Windows 8.1 made it the closest to the universal usability of Windows 7. so,. (.1 is the good, and 10, as general opinions is a shit. So now, The cycle continues

    Maybe my Yoga's touch screen will work again under Win11 and I won't have Windows Ink fight with my Wacom tablet on my workstation. I disliked the glassy interface before, and prefer a flat UI. I hate the recently minimalized scrollbars and it looks that that annoyance lives on. I don't see anything very interesting here, so I'll hope for better HID handling under the hood.

    Love the fact that android apps now run on desktop since it's easier to edit & then post images/videos on desktop than from mobile. So now posting to IG, Facebook, etc. will be a lot easier. That said, i wonder if apps like TikTok, IG on windows will have all the features of the mobile versions for native posting when turning on the webcam 🤔 I'm jumping with joy at all the possibility now! 🤸🤸🏄🏂

    If these Android apps are being populated from the Amazon App Store, I take it that means that Google's apps won't be available? For example, I use Google Play Books to manage my ebook collection. If I can't install that, then this isn't very useful. Can we sideload apps from an APK?

    tku - I was apprehensive about windows 11, due to some difficulties I had with old vs new. Furthermore, I do like the idea of moving into windows 11, now that you have told me about the good, the down-side and the side deals with Amazon and Microsoft etc. Subsequently, I do like the idea that it's going to house some android apps (like tik tok) which could be good. Re: Microsoft teams, I am a student at university, we use ZOOM in Australia, New Zealand etc 100% for uni, school, high-school, meetings, chit-chats with families etc, etc - therefore, Microsoft teams in my opinion may have difficulty converting us students at all levels and our families and friends into 'teams'. Tks for your great videos, you really help a beginner like me understand more about computers and their software. tku! :) :)

    Android-kinda-on-Windows. Seems like the inverse of Windows-kinda-on-RT. But, should be way better, since the Android store, unlike the Microsoft store, will have all the apps we want, and it will be a full-blown Windows that can run everything-Windows. As for the experience and value, I am extremely hopeful. I use a Surface Go as my Windows laptop. I would love to be able to use it as an all-out Android device when in tablet mode and as an all-out Windows PC when in laptop mode. And, I hope that anything I do in Office in one mode syncs with the other mode - and I don’t mean syncing a file, I mean also sync my activity. How about on a desktop? I can’t fathom using mobile apps from a keyboard. But, if Android for Windows takes off, I can very will imagine hardcore Windows applications developers creating Android apps that mesh with their Windows desktop software, Android apps used in tablet mode, on a Surface.
