    Come on man at least stop sharing that moron's content as though it's valid and rational. Remember when he carried on about that MASSIVE POSCAP DESIGN FLAW IN ALL 3000 SERIES NVIDIA CARDS? and it turned out to vanish with a simple driver patch? You can pretty much guarantee that the more seriously JayZ treats an issue, the less serious it is

    yes there was a further decrease in performance on AMD chips in Win11. they'll fix it. everybody sit the f#ck down

    That’s basically what the video said.

    Rrrright, that's what the video says, as well as: you shouldn't upgrade to windows 11 if you have AMD, "As if things couldn't get worse for Microsoft... This Windows 11 issue is unacceptable!", and the thumbnail is literally a windows desktop.... on fire!

    Not blowing it out of proportion at all.

    Win 11 has been fine for me, been running for a month or two, never even noticed the slow down stuff. Not saying it's not a shit thing, typical MS and Intel making sure it works for one and screwing over AMD again.

    That said, I love a lot of the changes in Win 11, styling is to my taste, more uniform UI is getting there and IE11 actually removed (engine still there in Edge for running old stuff), will be doing a lot of testing at work to get the few things running in the emulation mode under Edge.

    The two major annoying things they have done is screw the right click menu and take away the right click on the taskbar to quickly access Task Manager and what not.

    That's standard YouTuber thumbnail/intro click bait, doesn't mean the content isn't useful - you just have to have the patience to watch the whole thing... which you clearly didn't do.

    Like... your overly vitriolic reaction to me posting a video that might be useful to some people in this thread?

    It was certainly the first I had heard of the issue, and there little mention of it in this thread, so at a minimum his channel helped promote the issue to a wider audience and put pressure on MS to remedy it soon rather than later. How is that a bad thing exactly?

    Man I'm really starting to hate grouping, talk about slowing down workflow, if I've got more than one say file manager window open they are all grouped behind a stupid icon so you have to hover over the icon to get the list instead of seeing them all along the bottom.

    Completely useless for people who have multiple things open, say in a retail setting where you need a few sperate browser windows open, along with access to documents, and other apps.
    What a stupid idea taking away the choice of having them combined to not, it really does slows down workflow.

    Seriously that is really is my only grip besides the wasted "Recommended" space on the pined start menu, everything else has been fine.
