So you go and buy yourself a new watch,

A new dress,

A new phone, or whatever it may be.

All of us buy new or replacement items for very different reasons…

It could be about rewarding yourself for the hard work you’ve achieved. Fancy a change from the old. Keep up with the Joneses and impress others, or believing that by getting the thing, it’ll improve our lives.

Personally, I’ve never been a big material spender, and try to focus on less is more, and so when I do buy something new, it’s to replace the old, and not to accumulate.

Because in all reality, a new watch will give you exactly the same time as the old one. A new dress will still cover the areas you don’t want the outside world to see, and you’ll be able to make and receive calls as usual.

And this is how I feel about the recently released Windows 11 Operating System…

When I had Windows 10 on my laptop, I could surf the web, email people, write letters and create spreadsheets. And now with Windows 11, I can now surf the web, email people, write letters and create spreadsheets!

But the biggest change is the layout, which is quite different to all its predecessors. But if you’re familiar with any of the previous versions of Windows, you’ll easily find your way around Windows 11.

Having used it for a couple of weeks, I very much like the new look. It’s fresher and Windows 10 already feels a bit dated.

As I mentioned before, whether you upgrade or not isn’t a straightforward decision, as it’s not yours only to make, because the minimum system requirements are quite strict.

But if your system is eligible, only then can you decide to upgrade or not. There’s no right or wrong answer, but from my experience, Windows 11 is a pleasant and easy to use Operating System.

And so far, it feels pretty bug free, but only time will tell.
