Installed it day one on my 10850k rig. No issues and I like it more than 10. Shrugs.

 

I actually like it as well. It runs pretty great on everything I've put it on, supported and unsupported. For unsupported, it's running on my Ryzen Pro file server. As far as supported systems go, I've got it running on a couple of i7 laptops, an SQ1 Surface Pro X, and my main gaming rig with a 3900x. It's running pretty smooth on everything with no issues to complain about so far. I haven't even seen any performance hitches on the 3900x, but I did wait for those to be patched out before upgrading.

 

I have no complaints and a real appreciation for auto-HDR and everything just feeling more unified than it did in Windows 10.

Yeah as a MacBook user I mainly like that it's basically am osx/Macos skin on windows, and I don't know why people would wanna move the taskbar to the left, especially with multiple monitor set ups.

 

Minor issue I have is the "open with" right click seems to be gone but I only use that with notepad so it's not a huge deal to just open notepad and open the bat file I need.

 

Also, the Xbox app seems to be fixed where on windows 10 it was total trash.

"Open with" is still there. If there's more than one registered application for that file type you'll get the "open with" option on the right-click menu. If there isn't, it'll be hidden and you need to go right-click > show more options. Show more options brings up the old Windows 10-style right click menu which includes the "open with" item.

 

I found this pretty quickly when I realized that you don't get the 7-Zip explorer integrations in the main Windows 11 right-click menu.

I’m liking using the start menu instead of desktop since I’d already naturally started doing that and it seems built to be that way now.  I even keep the taskbar center, seems to work for me actually on my gaming pc hooked up to tv, not sure if I’ll like it on my work pc or not but I’m not doing that yet.
