Amazon does some very shady stuff.
My brother worked there in the Swansea depot. They treat staff so disgustingly poor that I will never give them a penny of mine. I would sooner pay extra elsewhere just out of principle or go without.

Windows 11 official MS blog. Not much in th way of details mostly hype building around a few features... But it is confirmed we are basically getting the Mac/Linux(some distros) taskbar wherein everything is centered.

https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexp...on-windows-11/
(This is for more information on new MS Store)

I am disappointed they continue to support 32bit applications however. It's time they let it go and commit fully to 64bit.

There's more in the top link, but the article does have various links inside to learn more about specific things.


Lastly Windows 11 will be a free upgrade coming this holiday season.

Is there anyone else besides myself that has a hard time for the icons and start menu to be centered on the screen now rather than the traditional left?

There is probably an option to have that reverted back to the left, and otherwise there will be people making it so, just like i have openshell to have the windows 7 start menu instead of the awful default one.

Its probably basic Taskbar configs where you want to place it much like deciding where you want the Taskbar itself.

So apparently certain motherboards that don't have TPM, Trusted platform module, Will not be able to install Windows 11, Microsoft really made some weird decisions with this upcoming OS.

TPM that plugs into the TPM connector that is at the bottom of most modern motherboards -

Not sure if it'll show up for everyone but Microsoft through the Xbox app in Windows are giving away 3 months of Game Pass Ultimate for £1 instead of £10.
