Grumble...Grumble...Microsoft.
#1
From Windows 10 To Windows 11.
Have been using Win10 for some time and did not see the benefit of updating to Win 11.
Reluctantly as Microsoft has decided Win10 is coming to the end of its support.
I have recently updated to Win 11...Why O' Why do these Ex colleges know it all have to change things that were working fine & easy to find in Win10...To justify their employment ? Now most options in Win11 are hidden away.

An OS should be a lightweight interface to enable software programs to run.
Instead they make it into a large program within itself.

The only upside is it keeps my aging brain active !!!

I have the same experience.
Just over 2 years ago I had a new PC built with Win 11 Home Edition for the same reason as you.

It's incredibly annoying to have to learn everything all over again, because Win 10 was pretty neat and understandable.
Win 11 has turned everything upside down, as all the control panel's functions have been moved to illogical groups/subgroups, and many basic functions are hidden in an equally illogical system.

Also, Win 10 could run almost all programs, while Win 11 can't - compatibility mode never worked.

For years I have witnessed what I would call a negative development, because Windows 3.11 was far easier to work with, as long as you had some knowledge of DOS.
It was easy to repair and all programs worked once you knew how.

Later Windows versions have lost their logical structure, and have a more and more hidden system, which I am not a fan of.

Microsoft boasts that Windows uses the core from Windows 2000, which is the fastest ever.
This does not help when the interface becomes more and more complex, because available resources are utilized to the maximum.

Sorry I put a YouTube Link which would not show my fault.

I have never used a LINUX OS but a Youtube article regarding FREE Zorin OS Core looks very interesting.
Linux being a small OS is fast.
Many Windows type programs have an alternative to run in Linux.

LINUX is definitely worth a try - I've tried several versions and similar OS and all are much faster than Windows.

However, I had to go back to Windows, because there were not good enough drivers for LINUX for my hardware.
At best they work with limited access to their parameters, but some did not support LINUX at all.

For example, all my hardware is 32 bit based, but LINUX can only run this as 16 bit, and then the whole point of my hardware is gone.

Most parameters also change or become unavailable, and this also applies to software.

But if you don't have expensive hardware that needs to be customized and only simple programs, you will be able to enjoy LINUX and its superior speed.
