I like it. I haven't had a thing not work or anything more awkward to do than before. On the whole I'm a fan of the look of it too.

As I say that, I notice screen snip doesn’t work.

If anyone else is having this issue where it says you need to refresh the PC to fix screen snip, I looked up this fix online and can confirm it works.

Turn off auto date and time, change the date to Oct 31st, open screen snip and press new (won't crash now), then turn auto date and time back on.

Has there been a workaround for ineligible PC’s yet? My other laptop should be well able to run it (as good or better specs as the one it’s installed on) but probably hasn’t that tpm thing.

For anyone wondering about trying out their own, I came across this artcle on The Verge that mentioned the same i7-7700HQ processor in my laptop and can confirm it works.

The cheap laptop at home was upgraded to Win11 while the photo processing rig is "stuck" with Win10. Having messed with Win11, I decided that I'm happy that the photo processing rig can't be upgraded.

I passed the Win11 laptop over to a family member and they are happy with it.

Well, what's the verdict so far ? I have the option to download it now on my home computer. Any problems with program compatibility ? Any hits on performance after it ?
