Happy I’m running Intel. :slight_smile:

They’ll fix it, I’m sure.

3800X here and yeah I mentioned it above so I should get a small boost when they update (unless exactly 8 cores isn’t included) … not that I’ve even seen any drop in performance since I switched, all I’ve actually noticed is less stress on my gpu and a smoother experience.

I think you don’t have enough trust level (not enough messages on the Forum) to be able to post there.

Start with the guidelines for the forum.

In particular…


Hello, thanks you for you explanation, I was not aware of the fact with the trust levels. But now I can do, so everythings fine. Thank you. :grinning:

5900X here - the CPU is a beast so haven’t noticed any slowdowns (barely breaks a sweat feeding the 3080ti after the magic Asobo did on thread management). But good that MS is fixing a rather glaring bug ASAP.

Upgrading to Windows 11 is pretty simple and imo if you can do it I see no reason not to from Windows 10. The UI looks a lot more modern though does take a little time to get used to. The only issue I have ran into so far was the latest Nvidia driver which is apparently Windows 11 ready, I had to roll back as it caused some strange graphics glitch. Performance wise I’ve not been having any issues though reading up on VBS and HVCI is a good idea.

First, I have never purchased the first year of a new vehicle model. By the second year of generation, many of the flaws have been solved. I feel the same with new software releases. Let the market innovators be the guinea pigs.

Second, that new state-of-the-art computer becomes more obsolete with every update to the operating system and program within it.

So far, I see nothing in Windows 11 that I need or want. I suspect I’ll be on 10 for a long time.

Right. Your choice.

Some people do not want electric cars too. Or even cars when there were still horses.

I’m glad to be a guinea pig then.
I enjoy a new Windows version that is perceivably faster in many areas - on the same computer.
And MSFS is running the same (or very slightly faster according to some who did measurements).

Every Windows releases - including the regular updates - bring their lot of issues.

It’s also very easy to roll back

Updated yesterday. Main problem so far is the WMR bug = “Windows Cannot Install This App”. So my £700 HP Reverb G2 is currently a nice looking paperweight! Debating whether to wait a while to see if it gets fixed or return to Window 10 - I cloned the C drive first!

To be totally objective, I just read through various “Best Windows 11 features” articles; best 5, best 10, best 25, etc. Again, I cannot find anything I need or want. They are all a “so what?”. Although rounded corners on boxes sounds really exciting. :rofl:

Waiting for a second year soaked product in a new product or generation of product is a lot different than not accepting a new technology like electric vehicles or horseless carriages.

I guess it all boils down to if you have NVme or not … who needs new technology Huh? :sunglasses:

I have no idea what that means.

What I did see is GlennAir1953’s post. If 11 cannot play nice with my new HP Reverb G2, that is a real reason to avoid it until it can. I wonder how many other surprises are lurking in 11’s program?

Hi all,

Any one enable Microsoft Windows 11 VBS ? Is your flight simulator FPS drop after enable?

I get it… I was just pulling your leg.
When you’re ready. But still, it’s very stable.
