First let me say I KNOW that Windows 11 is in the beta stage. That being said, I'm part of the Windows Insider program. The other day, just to see what the fuss was all about, I installed 11. Other then the fact that is boots faster on my system then 10, I really don't like it. What was the point in moving the icons to the center of the taskbar? Highly annoying. Good thing I was able to move them back to where they belong along the left edge. And the Start menu is a mess. All it is is a place for the apps you have pinned and a list that shows the most recent documents you opened. To get to a list of your apps you need to click "All App" in the upper corner. Would it not have been easier to leave an app list along the left side as Windows 10 has? Or least give me the OPTION to have a list there? I am thankful they got rid of live tiles, I never use them and find them highly annoying. I am a fan of how 11 handles notifications. The right click context menu was changed, now there are icons for cut, copy, paste, rename, and a few others. I did not enjoy that because I am so used to the old way and my eyesight isn't as good as it once was so copying and pasting was a chore. And the taskbar itself, even set to dark mode, is NOT as black as the same taskbar in 10. More like almost black, but not quite black. And the pinned icons on the taskbar were blurry and not as sharp as I see here in 10. And don't even get me started on the mess they call the settings.
All in all, all these together were a deal breaker for me. I hope MS polishes it more before they release it to the public. Needless to say I went back to 10.
