Windows 11 has 10 years of "beta testing" ahead of it, so who knows what they'll break within this time period.

Well printers still have problems with Windows 10.
Will they work fine on Windows 11 ?

i never said KDE looks like OSX

Windows 11 looks like KDE has mated with OSX
Microsoft has no own Ideas and just adapts Styles of other UIs.

It doesn't really matter who copies who, the important part is whether the (graphical) user interface works.
With windows (also true for some other systems) one is stuck with a "one size fits all" gui, that's the biggest drawback in my opinion.

Best thing about Windows 11? Companies are already retiring "non complaint hardware"
hardware for Late/Overkill XP builds are about to become cheaper 😀

That makes me wonder: Does Win 11 still support booting via BIOS/MBR?
I know of a few friends that run Win 10 x64 on dated PCs from the mid/late 2000s.

But if Win XI doesn't support that anymore (unless hacked to work with Win 10 loader),
then that alone would be a nogo for old PCs, even if they met the new requirements (TPM2, certain CPU instructions).

And considering that UEFI boot became common in the early-mid 2010s,
then the new strict hardware requirements aren't that strict, anyway.

Currently, supported PC hardware that's said to be Win 11 compatible
can be 5 years "old", at best.
So we're at 2017/2016, which is close to the ~ 2011-2015 years in which the first PCs with UEFI (64-Bit UEFI, full implementation) came out.

OS works fine with MBR and no UEFI, installer does not.
I'm not aware of any loaders needed. What has been out there is either deleting a .dll, switching out install.wim and also a register key that even Microsoft has published.

The script automates the process so you don't have to worry about the above.

Windows 11 will probably be the same as Windows 10 in terms of compatibility with old games.

Yeah, Win10 has different compatibility even between different builds (usually later builds break some games, like FF8 Remaster)

Good points so far. 🙂👍

On the other hand, isn't TPM which the new Windows wants, err.., unwelcome in certain places, among other things too? 😉

I wonder how this will have an impact to the acceptance of the new Windows.

For comparison : Back in the 90s, the Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 wasn't allow to provide high encryption strength in places/countries outside the USA.
Thus, here in Europe, it merely had 40 bit encryption strength or so.

Fortunately, the laws has been relaxed a bit since then (afaik) and now "mostly" applies to what they refer to as rogue states.

haha, good one! ^^

what didn't work in windows 10 definitely won't work in windows 11 either, the question is how many things that did work in windows 10 won't work in windows 11 😉

MS has revealed a simple registry key that will allow computers running Windows 10 to upgrade to Windows 11 even if the TPM 2.0 or CPU requirements are not met. Still supposedly have to have at least TPM 1.2 but that goes back a lot further.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup\MoSetup and then right-click the main panel and create a new DWORD (32-bit) Value with a name of AllowUpgradesWithUnsupportedTPMOrCPU and set its value to 1.

Printers have never, and will never work fine.

Can't find any reference to that on PCGW so not sure if that's even true? But yes, there will definitely be minor compatibility issues. Changing anything will always break something, even when it makes no sense.

There hasn't to my knowledge been any major compatibility differences between all Windows 8 & 10 versions though.

I had Dune 2000 that stopped working without Windows 9X Compatibility mode after the Creators' Update. Before, only Admin mode was required (that, and ddrawCompat).
(I really need to use the fan patch for that game anyway, instead).
But that's the only problem that I recall. Overall, since Windows 8 added the 8 BPP compat option, Windows is better than Windows 7 for old games, in my experience.

16-bit programs for start, as there is no longer a 32-bit build. 😁

Nah, MS is still doing their best to battle privacy and integrity. Fortunately there's other operating systems out there.

Totally agree, never looked back either, you?

I stopped reading as soon as I saw the privacy concerned person was using Windows 7, and was considering to switch to macOS.

I would consider Windows 11 equally a privacy nightmare as any internet connected, closed source OS .

Why would you read a podcast? MP3 is at the top 😉
Open source is better, but some like Ubuntu have their own privacy problems.

it need's to know what you eat and drink to offer you food, drinks, leisure, bikes, etc 😀
the more they know the more they can help you
just like we when helping others have to know their pc specs, etc 😀

That is how its sold to you , there is a darker side to this.

That's right, I think. And unsigned 32-Bit drivers, I assume.

Gratefully, we have DOSBox which can run Windows 3.1x. 👍
Compatibility of those is much much better to what the old NTVDM had to offer in the past years.
NTVDM was rather decaying after Windows 7, IMHO.

Another alternative nowadays is OTVDM/WineVDM.
It has its shortcomings (no DOS programs, no TWAIN driver support), but at least make Windows 3.x programs run seamlessly on Windows 64-Bit.

Maybe only games from Square-Enix affected 🤣, i don't know
