If it wasn’t for a certain set of applications that have only been developed for Windows based environments that I need for my major (Autodesk, ePlan, Solid Edge, a few more to come down the line), I would have probably switched to some flavor of Debian Linux to daily drive a while ago. (I did carry two laptops in my senior year of high school just so I could use my own Linux top instead of the school Windows top they gave me, I ran Mint back then)
I have 11 installed now, its… interesting. My first thought was that it had the look of a Chromebook. So far, everything seems to run fine, which I am not surprised by. (My taste in UI changes with the cycle of the moon, but I can see this growing on me)
Because my laptop is a thin and light 2-in-1 (I have an eGPU desktop setup for more graphics heavier processing tasks.) I am enjoying some of the new touch interface options, for the few times I am in tablet mode.
If there is one thing I can tell right off the bat is better is battery life. I need to watch it closely, but I already can tell I’ve decreased battery usage in daily tasks, and I could probably tune it further if I played around in settings for a bit.
I haven’t played with it much yet, because classes got in the way this morning, but Android app support could make it or break it for this Windows version. I’ve got the Amazon app store up and running, and apparently someone has already gotten the Google app store to run and has posted instructions on how to, but it isn’t official.
