every 2nd tuesday every month at least

and if you need hardware changes - I always think 2FA is a pain - but really doesn't take long .
my chrome remembers nothing- for critical logins - do you want to save cookies to look at this site - Ok - next time do you want to save cookies .

Actually shows how robust windows is - you can go months without rebooting

Even after all the fixes, Windows 11 still takes 2 times longer to boot up.

For me, that alone is reason enough to stay away from it. I'm on 5900X CPU.
So your priority is that couple of seconds per day instead of the rest of the day? Okay then.

I'm "due" for an upgrade on my home PC, going on 5 years old, but, I'm in no hurry. I'd rather wait out the "new" and wait til spring to upgrade. As for my laptop, I've already gotten the notification for the 11 update, but I'm holding off, for now.

Alder Lake is the beta chip, Raptor Lake is the one to wait for. Improved node, more efficient,, doubling of Gracemont core counts, new Raptor cores with 15%+ IPC uplifts. Zen 4 will also be a big change and is looking at 25-30% IPC uplifts, 3D cache, doubling of L1 L2 caches, RDNA2 GPU's on desktop. It should be a great battle, but not as good as Zen 5 vs Meteor Lake or Zen 6 vs Luna Lake where massive architectural changes are coming for both camps.

Boot Times mean nothing to me as the last time I had to boot the system was 123 days ago. What's important is UpTime and how frequently I have to reboot to install updates.

I have always been more concerned with uptime than boot times. Windows stability,, availability is marked in recent versions, there's little to complain about. Unlike others I can't use - a shutdown computer.

Raptor Lake is more like +20-25% IPC uplift.
And by then Software issues because of hybrid design is solved. However Intel is usually pretty good at reaching out to dev's before releases like this. I expect few issues.

Early Alder Lake game perf leaks shows smashing gaming performance tho, beating Zen 3 and Intels own chips with ease, even the i5-12600K pretty much smashed 5950X in terms of minimum and average fps in all the games I saw ealier. Makes me wonder what Alder Lake can do, when overclocked like mad and ignore 250 watt usage (because this will be easy to keep cool for people with good cooling). Alder Lake at 5.2 GHz or more on all cores is going to be insanely fast for gamers.

This is AMDs first time not having a huge node advantage. Looks like Intel is back. We will see soon.

Personally I will wait for Raptor Lake vs Zen 4 or even Meteor Lake vs Zen 5 before I pick a new platform for my gaming rig.

However I might get Alder Lake for my work laptop.

I am on 3950X and, really, it's all the same as on Windows 10 regarding boot time and all that. No problems with Windows 11 here.

here neither. I have a weak "surface go 2 core m" and a standard 8th gen i5 laptop (both with 8 GB RAM and SSDs) and on both W11 made everything snappier; booting up I notice absolutely no difference to W10.
