Windows 11: A TikToker’s version of Windows 10

On this Tuesday morning, I jumped out of the bed and straight ahead went to check my PC health, whether I can install Windows 11 or not. While most OEM installed laptops bought within last 3 years should qualify for this upgrade, for Desktop computers it could be tricky. I know a lot of schools and computers that run decade old hardware, they most probably won’t be able to upgrade to Windows 11.

First thing I found was, TPM 2.0 was not enabled in my computer, that’s easy, went to BIOS settings and enabled it, I’m not running NVME SSD on PCIE 4 slots, so it didn’t complicate things.

Next, I got, Secure boot is not enabled. Now this complicates thing. I’m running on Legacy so for me to enable Secure boot, first I have to disable CSM, now to disable CSM first I need to convert my file system from MBR to GPT. all of these steps come with precautions.

Now, fortunately I wasn’t dual booting with any other OS at the moment so I went through all these steps and with a bit of luck didn’t encounter any problem while converting my OS drive to GPT.

Nothing could stop me anymore, so finally I installed Windows 11.

But now, what do I get in return?
— Start Menu doesn’t make sense anymore.
— Right click is horribly nerfed.
— Shift + Right click is fuckin gone.
— as Simple as Renaming file is now restricted in Quick access.
— Ryzen machines are slowing down by at least 15%

You can’t place the taskbar icons wherever you want. The widget thing, what the heck is that?? I’ll give someone a coke on a hot day to explain to me what that thing is. I mean on Windows 10 the weather on taskbar actually made some sense but this is shit.

After a day of use in my personal machine, I have already shifted the start button to Left position, otherwise every time you open a window start menu will keep moving to a different location.

Overall, I feel, Windows 11 is bright, colorful, dumb, and almost like a TikToker’s edition of Windows 10.

Windows 10 and|vs Android Lollipop True Performance Test

Okay, Here’s a statistical experiment,

Every Computer is basically a Calculator.
And do you know how to push a calculator to its limit?

The FACTORIAL function. Obviously, there are some other methods but it is the easiest one indeed.
So, I compared the new Operating Systems like,
WINDOWS 10 and Android Lollipop with Python 3.4.3 IDLE.
Firstly I checked the Famous 65! (Ya! the limit of most of the
CASIO Calculators).Then eventually I increased the value and while in,
fact(171)
Lollipop just gave up already!
Windows 10 and Python IDLE were pretty good actually,
They just kept going. I have to admit this Windows 10 is better in terms of performance than the previous versions of Windows.
But at last in,
fact(3249)
Windows 10 gave up too.
Lollipop had just shown upto 6 decimal numbers then it summoned
the exponential function to save his ass. Windows 10 had proudly
shown upto 30 decimal numbers and then did the same.
But, on the other side Python didn’t stop at all.
As I expected.screenshot2b25285532529Operating Systems are the greatest abstractions made by the developers. Developers focus on the User Interface of an OS to make it as friendly as possible but that compromises some serious computing performance. So, as the Python IDLE actually work at hardware level, it gets to use the Quad CORE i7 Processor at its full potential. Wonder how much it scored?

Actually Python is not an abstraction, It basically shows how much
my Processor is capable of. But still for the stat lovers,
I have tested fact(1000000)
Yes! ONE MILLION . and moreover I got the result as it is, without any kinda exponential drag. See the numbers and the scroll bar in the picture. So, you guys now might have an idea of how much potential and power your Processors houses, and how less you get to use actually, because of these abstractions!!
We have to make more efficient codes in the future, till then use CLI instead of GUI for greater and richer Computation, if you already know it teach other people. Do not rely much on GUI based Operating Systems.
