Upgrade if you want

Windows 11

Primordial ooze


It’s going to be an interesting year for Microsoft and I’ll be watching with one eye focused on what they intend to do to flesh out what is mostly a confusing set of choices baked into a rather good – thankfully familiar – operating system.

Is it worth the upgrade? If you’re not in a rush for a fresh coat of paint, just wait for Windows 10 to prompt you that Windows 11 is ready for your system. Windows 10 sunsets in 2025, but I’d recommend you upgrade before then at least.
