Great video, thank you. I have not activated it myself, because the leaked version may contain malware and steal my product key.

So, I can not test the various themes, etc. Nice video.

From what I've seen so far not great not terrible, there's a progress that could go to a good direction that's not traditional like 7, not crippled like Windows 8, not an abomination like 10. Looking forward to 2025.

Of all the things that MS shoved into Windows UI after 2001, Live Tiles are one of the most benign, and none of them keeps coming back after you've removed them, as far as I know. Weather is almost useful - computer users typically have their window shades closed, or have their operations room in the basement, and how else could they check the weather right here, right now?

Looks nearly identical to Win 10 to me, bar centering of the start/buttons (which is a matter of taste, my start button is in the top right corner and in general "status bar" is better on the side when working on wide screens, but again a matter of taste)

People have been asking to centre the icons on the taskbar for a long ass time now, there is even apps to do it on the Appstore because it's more eye-pleasing and workflow friendly - Especially on ultrawide displays.
This might be a good idea if the execution was right. The start button is now a moving target, if you open several applications in succession from the start menu, the button will move to the left each time. In Mac OS High Sierra for example, the boundaries of Dock were still easily visible (but gradually disappeared over the years). Finding the left edge of Dock was easier because you had a visual cue. Microsoft didn't even try to copy the good part - there's no boundary at all between the Start button and the empty part of the taskbar.

Parts of desktop (or parts of a window) that serve different functions should be easy to distinguish visually, that's something that Microsoft was well aware of until ~2009, and less and less afterwards.

Then again, if you click to the left of the Start button, what happens? Do you get the menu anyway?

Well after a quick whip around the os....it's fine I guess? It's like 10 and Vista had a baby.

I don't really care for the new icons or the new start menu but I'll get used to it. Move the start button to the left and yawn.

I'm not really concerned with wallpapers or sounds, they can be changed after all so whatever.

It is quite linux like which I think is what they're going for as further linux integration is coming.

I do use a tablet a lot, so the increased spacing of files in windows is appreciated for finger tapping.

It looks like widgets are back on the menu with "Windows Dashboard". I use rainmeter anyway, but thanks?

Lots of stuff I didn't ask for or greatly care about.

Running in a VM, it's at about 1.3 to 1.6GB memory usage at idle (next to no programs installed).

I have installed both Windows 10 and Windows 11 in VirtualBox, they both use 2GB of RAM when idle, with no programs running.

I was just holding out hope that they debloated W11, is all

less background processes, smaller install footprint or whatever... Win 11 being "windows 10 without the garbage" would make it popular, fast

Yeah I don't see that as a major focus for them at the moment.

I only see windows becoming increasingly more touch-centric. More moving of stuff from control panel into the settings app until c-p is gone altogether.

And probably more mobile app and linux integrations.

It looks horrible!

There is no relation between those ugly folder Icons and the whole OS.

Windows 10X's start menu is not good for desktop PCs, It's difficult to find apps by their Icons. Windows 10 start menu is the best so far.

Icons on the center of the taskbar? What a stupid move. You kinda have to aim for the Start key!

The name is so weird. Windows 11?! Are we living in 2011? Windows 10 was so much cleaner and elegant. If they're tired of Windows 10 just rename it to Windows...

So far I'm so disappointed

Those new icons look like my first attempts at SVG pictograms in Inkscape... Current set is at least passable, I hope they'll leave the option to switch back.
OSXy taskbar is a good thing. I've been using something like this on Ubuntu and older versions of Windows(since XP), but ended up being too lazy to find a solution to realign my app buttons in W10.
The rest - don't care about and will likely disable. Can't even stand their new weather widget near system tray, which requires you to sign in with MS account in order to change locale and location.

That's what I thought before, but given their recent history I think Nokia destroyed Nokia. Their refreshed smartphone business was promising, but formally lasted a year with one product lineup cycle. No proper flagships since my Nokia 8, no OLED models, not a hint of "legendary reliability"... everything is sub-mediocre and overpriced, even feature phones.

I hate the taskbar look. I hate giant clutter on the screen. What good are bunch of stupid icons that just litter the work space?

I hate the "Type here to search" spot on the task bar on Windows 10. It takes up unnecessary space. But if you hide the search bar it doesn't show up when pressing the Windows Key, like it did under Windows 7.....so you have no quick way to search for programs.

I just like, simple, clean looking and easy to navigate without having a ton of giant images/icons shoved in your face. At times I like to navigate with just the keyboard and even times when I know exactly where a file/program is I need I might launch it from the command prompt instead of clicking my way through half a dozen folders. When I first loaded and used Windows 10 it looked like and felt like someone threw up in the start menu....so cluttered with pinned crap it almost made my eyes bleed. That's about the same way I feel when I see my wife boot up her Mac laptop....giant icons at the bottom, her desktop screen cluttered....I even asked her if she uses all those programs along the taskbar at the bottom and she told me that she doesn't and she also doesn't even know what a few of them are, but just leaves them there.

Absolutely disgusting rounded crap with tons of mobile elements.
MS is absolute shameless liars, they said Win 10 would be the last.
You can make Win 10 the last one for you - in which case, MS didn't lie to you.

Dammit if they are going to make it like a Mac I'm going to Linux
and it happened again, when M$ like want to follow the other coz of the looks, M$ like never learn from Windows phone that following android and IOS
now they look like following apple, although they have their own character

So. Much. Padding.

Every icon is a million miles apart and you can't tighten the grid. Just wasting screen space for the hell of it.
