I finally upgraded to win11 on my laptop

<ms-rant>I'm currently irritated that for the first time ever, I am being forced to retire *perfectly good hardware in order to run a new O/S that I don't really want. Sigh | :sigh: Unfortunately, I'm still maintaining LOB desktop applications and need to test on that environment. (especially now that one customer is reporting print preview issues that are specific to Win11) < /ms-rant>

* 7 y/o laptop (i7 + 16GB) and a 5 y/o desktop (AMD A12-9800 Radeon R7 + 12GB)

Hmmm, after writing this I realize that while that hardware doesn't feel old, it really does match my replacement cycle of 5-6 years. Wow, time sure flies! OMG | :OMG:

It doesn't really matter though as yesterday I ordered a new desktop system (AMD Ryzen 5 + 16GB) with lots of room for expansion. It was the most money I've paid for a PC in decades, but it should last for awhile. I found it amusing that not one reviewer discussed performance for work...either developers don't leave reviews, they don't buy 'gaming' rigs, or most consumers are just looking for a pretty toy to play with.
