The thing is I bought it because I thought they were going Software-as-a-Service and thought people would happily pay a monthly fee to use Windows. Turns out they jettisoned that but decided to actually make a new version of Windows after all for people to be forced to upgrade to.

I've railed a bunch about TPM and Secure Boot requirements but even just bumping the DirectX requirements for the base OS will drive a lot of gamers to upgrade if they don't just switch to Linux or even Mac OS. Like DWM really needs to *require* a DirectX bump, JFC.


I just hope that competitors, especially Linux-based ones, can make the case that the time of ubiquitous and backwards-compatible Windows is gone in personal computing. There's real opportunity for positive outcomes here despite Microsoft doing so much wrong with Windows 11.
