Windows 11 does not feel like a desktop operating system. It’s not as bad as Windows 8, but the identity crisis has returned. Back then, Microsoft saw all the iOS devices like the iPad and thought, “this is the future of ALL computing… better ruin Windows with a full-page start screen.” Well, we all know how that went.

With Windows 11, it’s less severe, but they are backsliding toward that nonsense. This feels like They tried to adapt Windows 10 for smart phones. The edges are curved and bubbly, things are way too spaced out, and when you click on the wifi or volume a whole cluster of nonsense pops up. No, no no. This isn’t made for a desktop. Let’s un-f#ck it.
