As we know a version of Windows 11 has been leaked. For all the tech gurus, I believe you have visited the core elements of the OS. I like the new UI design elements with the Start button in the center and also the backward compatibility hasn't been cut much(haven't checked 16-bit emulation). The installation screen has been changed to make it more "friendly" and it now doesn't ask for MS account login anymore 😀. As far as drivers go by, the VMware drivers have worked for it(probably Windows 10 ones installed). How do you see the new OS and what are the positives and negatives you find here?

I personally like the Windows 10 choice of making a local account "I don't have an internet connection" or signing into a MS account "connect to wifi".

I use the local account when I am rebuilding computers to give away / sell. The MS account sign in is nice because it links the activation to your MS account and then if you change hardware or even build a new computer you can transfer the license very easily.

I haven't actually taken a look at the Windows 11 "leak".

Microsoft is rushing to take down links and I was ahead on the line.

It's not April the first yet is it?

90% of Win10 installs I've done include joining them to a traditional Windows server domain and that whole MS account thing is a bit heavy handed.
Linking to a MS account is nice though. In my case its centrally managed a AzureAD account but can imagine personal accounts been a good thing for the reasons listed above.
So if MS is been a little less forceful, (are you sure? are you really sure?) then its small but good thing.

Just watched the 1st video out of the 3 above. Nothing yet makes me want to rush out and upgrade, but then I'm still in no rush to upgrade from 7 so it's a hard sell anyway.
I know it's early days so not much is known but everyone keeps mentioning the rounded edges like its new and exciting and all I can think is "So like XP?"

I quite like the "signing in on install" part of Windows 10. Activation is taken care of, my xbox game pass works fine etc. It's also "cleaner" in that on the occasions I've set up a local account and then ended up signing into my Microsoft account to get access to my paid for games I end up with two accounts on log in and on the system or something - the local and the online.

I now make an effort to have a wifi dongle plugged into my PC (and one that Windows 10 has built in drivers for so it will work during W10 install) so that the signing in and activation can actually happen, which is the opposite of how I install XP and 7 - I keep those offline until I have all the drivers and everything all ready to go!

I’m more concerned if my sc8850, mu2000 and old drivers like that will still work. 😀

Windows 10 drivers should work in most cases, or any driver that supports Windows 10

I don't hate the option, I personally login during installation. It now gives me more flexibility to do this.

I am aroused about any X86 motherboard that has full functional ISA slot. I think i have problem. Not really into that original (Turbo) XT,286,386 and CGA/EGA stuff. So just a DOS nut.
