In the Last couple of days though I've had internal notification from Microsoft of updating to Windows 11.
I'm kind of tempted, because of the free upgrade option, and would be one of the first in line, so to speak, for a newer OS. But then on the other hand I'm really enjoying my experience with the whole new Windows 10 thing. Which is all exciting to me. Therefore why should I upgrade to this newer OS, because Microsoft are prompting me to do so. Just what would be the benefits. If any at all?
Personally I'm happy with what I've got at present, but there's a very small part of me nagging away, saying could this be beneficial. Again thinking your getting a free and newer upgrade to Win 11 here. Wow that's a nice little bargain there.
The obvious point and worry though, is that the warts and scars, that may come with this new Win 11 OS, may carry a threat of some of my games (GPL) and apps not working anymore. So is it worth it the upgrade?
What I can't really understand, from Microsoft, is why oh why are they quick to the draw on prompting you to upgrade. When to my knowledge Win 11 is still in its infancy and early days. At the start of its life.
Therefore should I be tempted (plus others) to upgrade or wait awhile for further development of this new OS. Up until all its possible bugs and problems, which I thing there will be, get ironed out. Or should I just go for it now. After all through research I've found out that the new OS specs improve gaming and graphics?
My initial thought though (thinking clear and safely) is to abandon this idea and hang onto what I've already got, my default pure Win 10 machine and system. As it's also new. Hang on longer for a few more years, then upgrade later to a newer system Win 11 installed as default and standard. I think I'm right in saying, that I've heard that Microsoft will stop supporting Win 10 in 2025?
So therefore in 2026 purchasing again and getting a good 5 years out of my present laptop is a more positive idea.
Is this now the way of the world, is it me or is it Microsoft. Why can't they just leave things alone for awhile, and give things like OS systems more longer life and legacy. Why are they always tampering and always jumping ahead quickly upgrading every 2 minutes to a newer system. Instead of giving users a chance to breath with a longer lifespan. Then again I suppose I can answer my own question there by presuming it's done for security reasons and of course coupled with financial gain for them as a vendor too?
Please everybody what do you all think and what are your views.
Stay with Windows 10 for a while longer, or move immediately on to Win 11. Your advice and thoughts please much appreciated 👍
