I don't need any "feature" (spam) updates. It works for me, leave it alone.
So turn off telemetry if that bothers you but it's not causing any kind performance loss or anything you would actually notice.Upgraded my PC last winter and figured why not get on with 11 because it was said to have better core scheduling for my processor.
I honestly feel it's no better than 10 and in some ways worse. Probably just more spying and data collection going on in the back end
Not everyone pays for it and those that do, they do it cause they feel it's the best option for them, some just like it and others use it for business.In 2023, people still pay (with discounts, LOL) for proprietary garbage that they don't really own. While with Linux you have YOUR operating system for free, lightweight, not spying on you, no need for antivirus..... and the best of the best, the greater the number of user, the faster the progress.
It's true -- running WIn10 and Win11 side-by-side in VMs, Win11 boots in probably half the time, it's noticeably snappier, and probably does about 1/2 the disk I/O while it's firing up too. I'm an Ubuntu user myself but I'll give credit where credit's due, they did a nice job speeding things up there!To those holding off on upgrading to Win 11 - I was also reluctant to move to Win 11, but I have to say that I’ve been generally pleased with it. I find that the UI seems to be snappier than W10, and I’m a big fan of dark mode, tabbed file manager, and tabbed command prompts.
