Windows 11 Upgrade Benefits

When it comes to upgrading your operating system, there are USUALLY quite a few benefits to look forward to (unless it is Windows Millennium Edition…) when the upgrade is complete. With Windows 11 we’ve noticed a more consistent, cohesive and beautiful design (that may slightly resemble another popular operating system). There are new layout options, allowing you to have more customization over your experience. The operating system also has a few updates that should help those that are interested in gaming along with other performance-enhancing features. Additionally, Windows 11 can now run Android apps, allowing you to enjoy apps across more devices.

The Downsides of Windows 11

Although there are plenty of benefits to upgrading to Windows 11, we do want to take the time to mention some of the flaws we noticed. For those with older computers, it may not be a wise choice, a more recent CPU is required. The new look/interface certainly takes getting used to as well as it is quite different than what most are used to. Some tools such as Action Center, Tablet Gestures and even Timeline are also gone.
