One survey says Windows 11 adoption hasn't even surpassed Windows XP yet

The problem with Windows 11 adoption isn't that it's a bad OS, it's the Stalin-like efforts from Microsoft to force everyone to upgrade to a newer system(which many don't need), to use TPM(which NO ONE needs) and to use SecureBoot(also NO ONE needs).

IF certain pathetic people at Microsoft would stop trying to be tyrants, fewer people would hate them and more people could see Win11 for the solid and quality OS it is.

Certain decision makers at Microsoft have their heads firmly lodged in their bum. Makes you wonder when they're going to pull out and get some fresh air.. Or better yet, just leave the company.

W11Pro beta channel has been great.
Zero complaints overall.
I don't build a new system just to pair it with old software. It's what's under the hood that compliments what you have.

TBH, I am glad I can't upgrade to Windows 11.
It most likely means I won't turn my PC one day and witness booting it broken, auto upgraded, Windows 11.
Win11 is fine I guess, I already tried to use it, but it's far from "better than 10" which already is a really poor base for OS you want to use for work or gaming.

Tpm is used by bitlocker though tpm 1.2 works in windows 10.
I can say bit locker is a must be used feature, so when your disk is stolen, regular thiefs can't see your data.

Yeah, I know, but what does it fix? I mean other than constant stream of broken updates, killed services while you are working, updating driver of a device you are using etc.?
+ If I am not mistaken, you can pretty much stop updates on Pro, not just pause them.

I'm just waiting for them to release several good updates to it that will compel me to upgrade. I'm usually an early adopter, but win 11 didn't convince me yet.

Bitlocker is good but you can’t use it with Ubuntu in dual boot. Sad!

Windows 11, is so good, people are flocking to it in dribs and drabs and dribbles and drabbles. so many dribs. Given all the paid commentator program in all the forums, this is just too funny

Gee, Windows 11 adoption rate is slow?? With, for many people, having to buy all new hardware just to run it, I cannot imagine why the adoption rate is slow. 🤷‍♂️ Besides, XP is still better. 🤣

What worries me is that they should have backed down at this point, but they aren't and yet, they aren't convincing anyone. This means that Microsoft will go back to their old tricks and become much more aggressive at pursuing upgrades, perhaps even forcing people to upgrade at one point or intentionally crippling Windows 10 machines.

I know what you're all thinking: that'd be suicide or at the very least a monumental mistake, but well all I can reply is Windows 11 is *already* a huge mistake that doesn't even register on a company that has survived decades of "huge mistakes" Like Millennium, Vista, 8 and now 11.
Perhaps they should rename themselves to MistakeOSoft. 🤣

You're not mistaken. I run pro on all my home computers and have shut them off with GPEdit. The only way I get Windohs updates is to manually check for them. I do that about once a year or so.

Using "Good Updates," in a sentence where Microsoft is concerned, is an oxymoron. 🤣
Maybe, but amongst the many bad updates, they do sometimes deliver some good ones (like how when they split svchost, with each service finally having its own instance).

MS did say that they will focus on performance in 2022, I'm still waiting on them to actually deliver something along those lines :)

"A survey released by IT company Lansweeper this week paints a dismal picture for Windows 11 adoption among enterprise workstations". In that definition of "workstations" do Lansweeper also include those tiny office desktops or laptops that the office personnel uses to read and send e-mails, web-surf and check their social networks all day long? Because those might be running Windows 10 but our mission-critical WORKstations are still running Windows 7 as some of our software doesn't work properly with Windows 10 (for unknown reasons, Microsoft won't provide any assistance in these cases, it's up to the end user to figure it out and buscarse la vida).

Incoming comments from people that are butthurt that they won’t be able to install Windows 11 on hardware they bought years ago. Probably typed on an Android phone that has 1 year of latest OS support…
What's wrong with being but-hurt? I was under the impression that is something desirable in the woke, progressive and inclusive social environments that trolls dwell in. Besides, as you know, it doesn't always hurt, though it depends on the size of the sausage.

I'd like Windows to stop breaking with regular updates please. Maybe then, I'll adopt the latest and greatest. Performance is priority, not visuals and useless features.

Why am I not surprised? I have a Hexacore i5 with 16 GB DDR4 ram and an addon nVidia 1030 4GB PCI-e graphic card. The stupid system keeps saying it does not meet the requirements. So I say "screw you", I will continue with Win 10, I am not spending money on unnecessary hardware. There probably are millions more like me out there,

Gee, it's almost as if the fact that WIN11 can only be installed on certain PCs (TPM 2.0 requirement) is limiting its spread.

WHO'DA-****IN-THUNKIT?

Hey. I have one PC from Lenovo and another from Dell that were built in 2018. They have both been upgraded since then with RAM and SDDs and video cards. I cannot install Windows 11 on either of them because they don't have TPM 2.0. That's it. That's the only frickin' reason. In what universe does that make any damned sense?

What do you need windows 11 for that you can’t do in windows 10?

Waddya talking about? Every edition of Windows has been faster and more responsive that the previous one, er hasn't it? M$ would never lie about such a thing, now would they?

When I think of the term "spread", the first thing that pops into my mind is venereal disease. Well that, and SARS.

Besides, Satya Nadella said Windows 11 was never going to exist. Don't be mean by buying it, and making a liar out of him in the process.
