I’m switching to Windows 11

Windows 11 rolled out on October 5, 2021. I didn’t upgrade at release and I’m usually an early adopter. Instead, I watched others, with hesitation to install it onto my laptop. The media painted a picture showing how the upgrade brought remorse to users.

It seems the current leading argument is that Windows 11 is in better shape than before and to perform the upgrade if you’re interested. Well I am. Every gadget I’ve purchased was out of a desire to experience something new or different. Based on what I can gather, Windows 11 doesn’t shine on the spectrum for being very different from Windows 10. Although, there are reported differences between the two.

I’ve no qualms about giving up my familiarities with the Windows 10 taskbar for a Chrome OS-esque experience. I also get that there are bugs but doesn’t every software application have those? Personally, I am interested in the revamped Windows Store with the release of Android apps (ooh la la). Of course, as a PC gamer with a Game Pass subscription, I’m eager to check for performance improvements.

That said, my Acer Predator Triton 300 meets all of the minimum requirements:

  • CPU: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster with 2 or more cores on a compatible 64-bit processor or System on a Chip (SoC)
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Storage: 64GB of larger
  • System firmware: UEFI, Secure Boot capable
  • TPM: Trusted Platform Module (TPM) version 2.0
  • Graphics card: Compatible with DirectX 12 or later with WDDM 2.0 driver
  • Display: High definition (720p) display that is greater than 9” diagonally, 8 bits per color channel
  • Internet: (Obviously)

So, I am taking the dive. Check back later because I intend to share how it goes.
