Upset I made a huge mistake a few days ago when I upgraded my LUMOS from Windows 10 to Windows 11!  I fled 11 and went back to 10 with the aid of a fantastic Support person, Jose MerlaLove! Initially, the new OS seemed good and interesting until my Monitor developed a bit of flickering. Within hours there were periodic blinking. Then the occasional flash. The drivers were all up to date. No malware or supposedly problematic software. Then there were certain essential pieces of Graphics Software that I use for my Artwork that started to malfunction or overall performance was degraded.

I talked to a couple of friends, old folks like me, who also had these kind of issues on different platforms. The bunch of us hate Windows 11 and strongly suggest that you stick with Windows 10 for as long as you can because it is much friendlier to your machine, even if it isn't as pretty as Windows 11.

I generally don't switch OS until I absolutely have to. Can't tell you how long I hung on to XP.. all the way to the bitter end.

Work machines still on 7...

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

I have read in a few places that it is being compared to W8 and 8.1 and you know how efficient they were. Chilling
My main system is still on W7U and will remain on that until the mobo dies. I am not particularly against W10 or 11 but with each new OS, we lose control of our systems in the name of safety. Sound familiar?Ninja

I am pleased that I was able to rescue you from oblivion It astonishes me that our beloved Digital Storm would foist this Medusa upon its unwary sojourners. This Windows 11 is no Vestal Virgin, for us to bow to and kiss her feet and to worship as an act of wonder. No, if Windows 11 is not Medusa, in the form of software, then it is Loki who has decided to trick us into submission to a nightmare as the image of Paradise.LOL

Agreed that 11 is not up to par. Unless you need it for a new CPU architecture, I too suggest you avoid "upgrading" within the foreseeable future.

I haven't had any serious problems with Win 11 yet, knock on wood. I will admit I have had to reload my Sound Blaster AE-7 drivers every time MS decides to do a minor "update" to Win 11. This could be a Sound Blaster's issue since they have been a little squirrelly in the past. :-(

Such fun trying to stay current. I am brave and try to stay as close to current as I can but it has bit me in the A$% a few times already. But I enjoy the challenge to get the new stuff working like they said it would! :-)
