The numbers don’t lie. Despite its issues, Windows 11 is on track to soon become the biggest operating system for PC gamers. In a way, it kind of wins by default as it’s naturally going to be supported for longer and will continue to receive essential security updates and improvements as Microsoft sends Windows 10 off to pasture.

Challenges in Adoption

Still, all the recent problems won’t help persuade Windows 10 users to migrate, and indeed outside of the gaming world, adoption of Windows 11 has proved far more sluggish. Worryingly so for Microsoft, given that Windows 11 is a free upgrade too (though some folks can’t upgrade due to the hardware requirements of the new OS, of course).

Windows 10 will no longer be supported come October 2025, so one way or another, in not much more than a year, people are going to be forced to upgrade to Windows 11, or look at an alternative such as Linux (or pay for extended Windows 10 support, which is a third option).

Future Prospects

As the clock ticks down to October 2025, Microsoft is likely to ramp up efforts to smooth the transition for users. We can expect a series of updates aimed at addressing current issues and enhancing the user experience. This could include:

  • Performance Improvements: Ensuring that Windows 11 runs smoothly on a wider range of hardware.
  • Security Enhancements: Introducing advanced security features to protect against emerging threats.
  • User Interface Tweaks: Refining the user interface based on feedback from early adopters.

Despite the hurdles, the inevitability of Windows 11's dominance seems clear. As more users make the switch, the ecosystem will grow stronger, attracting more developers and fostering innovation. In this light, Windows 11 is not just an upgrade; it’s a stepping stone towards a more integrated and secure digital future.

Community Response

The community response has been mixed but gradually warming up. Enthusiasts and early adopters have praised the new features and overall design improvements. However, there remains a vocal segment of users who are hesitant due to compatibility concerns and a preference for the familiarity of Windows 10.

To address these concerns, Microsoft has been actively engaging with its user base through forums, feedback hubs, and social media channels. This open line of communication has led to several updates that directly address user feedback, showcasing Microsoft's commitment to making Windows 11 a user-centric operating system.


While the journey towards widespread adoption of Windows 11 is fraught with challenges, the path forward is clear. With continued support and enhancements, Windows 11 is poised to not only take the OS crown but also redefine what users can expect from their operating systems in terms of performance, security, and user experience.

How to sharpen photos in Windows 11?

To sharpen photos in Windows 11, you can use the built-in Photos app. Open the photo in the Photos app, then click on 'Edit & Create' and select 'Edit.' In the edit menu, navigate to 'Adjustments' and use the 'Sharpness' slider to increase the sharpness. Additionally, you can use third-party software like Adobe Photoshop or GIMP for more advanced photo sharpening options.

Is there a difference between Windows 10 and Windows 11?

Yes, there are several differences between Windows 10 and Windows 11. Windows 11 features a redesigned user interface with a centered Start menu, updated taskbar, and rounded window corners. Performance improvements, better support for virtual desktops, and enhanced gaming features like DirectStorage and Auto HDR are also included. Additionally, Windows 11 requires more stringent hardware specifications, including a compatible 64-bit processor, TPM 2.0, and Secure Boot.
