I am really not a fan at all!
Firstly the default position of the start button is so Inconvenient and if its center aligned it doesn't even remain in the same place. Windows 11 is basically more of a design update to Windows 10. No new or rather user friendly or productive features except for running android apps are present.
Start menu is terrible! It has lost its classic touch. Only pinned apps visible, you need to click a button separately to view all apps. Start menu can't be resized, full screen start absent, no live tiles (biggest let down). The WiFi, Sound and Bluetooth bar adds to the inconvenience. Why open all of them if you just want to change the settings of 1. One drive is also not stable.
Settings look is OK. Not very impressive. App logos OK. The earlier ones were much better. The Chat, Switch Desktop functions are pinned to the taskbar all the time and cannot remove them. Very annoying. Preview peek desktop on hovering cursor is also missing. I personally liked the feature.
Long saying short - I would prefer to use Windows 10 rather than Windows 11 or would even like Windows 7 better than Windows 11. Clearly Windows 11 is just a design update of Windows 10 other than the Android apps. Might as well add the feature to Windows 10!
Clearly an unplanned, inconvenient, hard user interfaced and unhelpful operating system. Currently what I feel is that looking at the scenario now I am thinking that Windows 11 will be a fail. No better than Vista. Doesn't provide with any useful features.
I would say that this nothing else but a Downgraded OS.
I would be highly obliged if Windows 11 would be reworked upon .
I am an enthusiast in the field of computers and I'm keen on trying out new features!
Hoping to see a much modified Windows 11 on 5th October.

I'm sure many will agree with you on some points, and yes the most obvious changes are on the front end, and there are certainly personal preferences to every UX.
Some of the things you point out are configurable in the settings already, so I'd encourage you to explore those in more depth as you may be happier with the result (app alignment, pinned items like Chat, etc.). I feel the most constructive take-away from your post is a desire for more configurability, and that is something I'm confident everyone will be able to agree with and would be something the designers would be willing to consider :)

@davidpetree2 why respond lkike that. windows 11 is greta its reliable and works well but there is alot of stupid things like no third party widgets, instead you get a few microsft options that most people i know wouldnt use. i want widgets, so im gona let people know this. like skype not working on 11 on desktop and laptop for a day. or say not being able to drag start menu icons over too desktop. its all about moaning so changes might happen. but apart from windows 8 which took me a month t0 use ive always been a windows fan, i just dont think microsft are. look how live tiles was abandoned years ago and left to users to put up with and i love live tiles.

@Arin_Swadi Or you can just buy a M1 Macbook Pro like I did and give up on Windows all together. I took a chance and bought an M1 at Costco to try it out and man what a great decision! The OS feels like it's super solid built by the highest level of detail and craftsmanship and the processor is just a monster! It makes my Thinkpad look stupid b/c the M1 gets 2 days of battery life without stepping down performance at all and runs as cool as a seal in the artic. It's also like having a dedicated gaming GPU in your laptop without any of the battery drain or heat.
It took a while to get used to some of the OS X stuff like the way it handles cut and paste but it was worth it. No crashing, apps run faster than ever, laptop runs cool and I never carry around my power plug because I never need to charge it! My Thinkpad gets 3 hours on a good day with the wind blowing in the right direction and as soon as I start doing anything intense, that battery life goes down to 1.5 hours.
I feel like I need a nuclear power plant just to keep a Windows laptop running when doing anything like video editing while the M1 uses unicorn farts and solar panels to tear through video editing and heavy sound work. Frankly, if I was Intel or Microsoft, I would be so embarrassed.
I am never going back to Windows. M1 for life!!

@neonatari No, what we really need is just 1 control panel that hasn't been stripped of 99% of it's functionality, so we can actually troubleshoot and fix simple issues like we used to be able to.
Not whatever travesty this is
