    With Windows 11 22h2 just being released thought I would ask.

    Windows 11 on my home laptop (surface) which I do like. Windows 10 on my work machine - cant take the pain of upgrading the user machines to Windows 11 as yet - maybe next year :)

    Windaz 11 at home and in work. I've dabbled with Linux over the years but always get bored and come back to windows as it's what I know best, especially troubleshooting issues. I was on MacOS before this in work but switched back to a PC once I got bored of needing a Windows VM in Fusion for things like PowerBI, which I am certain MS don't have on a Mac just to make you do what I did...

    I'm rocking Windows 11 on my home laptop too, and I'm loving the fresh feel of it! The new design and features are pretty slick, and it's been a smooth ride so far.

    Fan of windows 11 although I did go back to a mac recently. No idea what the Os is called these days because they all look mostly the same. iOS. What ever the latest version is

    Thanks for sparking this discussion! I'm currently running Windows 10 on my personal laptop, but I'm definitely curious about Windows 11's latest offerings. It's wise to take a cautious approach with upgrades, especially for work machines where stability is crucial. Waiting until next year sounds like a sensible plan.

    Windows 10. Want to upgrade to Windows 11 but got a problem with the laptop screen. It goes totally black at 144Hz refresh rate, only works good at 60Hz. And the bios starts at the 144Hz. So, i can't upgrade the windows to 11. If i did, i would have to buy a new screen. Sad life.

    Thought I had replied to this. Was up until a few months ago Windows 10, but as my CPU was not one of the supported ones, so no free upgrade and I am certainly too tight to spend stupid money replacing the CPU with one that my mobo supports I thought stuff it and put Linux Mint on it instead. My PC has suddenly had a new lease of life, it boots quicker, is generally more responsive and I will not be going back to Windows any time soon.
