Is Windows 11 worth the upgrade

I was hesitant to upgrade to the new Windows 11 OS but after watching many reviews of the OS I finally decided to upgrade to the new OS on the 1st of April, new month, new OS. Well after using it for 2 weeks now I will state my reasons why Windows 11 is better than Windows 10.

The new UI:

If you ask me about my experience with the new changes, I have fully embraced the new Start menu and taskbar and didn’t make any changes. I find it more productive to have the Start menu and icons in the middle, as my focus is usually in the middle of the screen while working. The icons are nearest to my mouse cursor, and I highly appreciate the Start menu only focusing on what matters. The taskbar now also gives you access to widgets. These basically show quick updates from apps and services, somewhat replacing Live Tiles. The News widget shows current events from across the world of politics, finance, sports, technology, etc. This was made available in recent versions of Windows 10 as well. However, it has a different appearance here and it also shows up from the left side of your screen instead of the bottom right. Windows 11 has a fresh new look.

Windows 11 manages background processes better:

Windows 10 has a bunch of extra background apps, including apps like OneDrive and skype running by default. In Windows 11, there are fewer background apps/processes running by default, and its resource allocation algorithm is updated to prioritize foreground apps. If your PC has less RAM and CPU power, then Windows 11 will definitely offer better performance as it focuses on the foreground apps and has fewer background processes consuming limited resources.

Improved gaming performance:

For hardcore gamers, Windows 11 comes with the tools to take full advantage of your high-end rig. It supports DirectX 12 Ultimate, which offers better visuals and frame rates on supported games. Many new game titles have dedicated visual settings that take advantage of DirectX 12 Ultimate to provide better performance and visuals.

Can use Andriod Apps on Windows 11:

Microsoft has collaborated with Amazon Appstore and intel to let you use Android apps in Windows 11 natively. Soon you’ll be able to install many of your favorite Android apps right from the Microsoft store and run them in an Android subsystem right inside Windows 11. If you depend on some Android apps, Windows 11 will make things so much easier for you by letting you use them on the desktop without touching your phone. So far, there is no word on whether Windows 10 will get this support or not.

Snap Layouts:

Windows 11 comes with a new snap layouts feature that lets you snap multiple apps to different size grid layouts on the screen. Instead of using only the drag-and-drop feature found in Windows 10, snap layouts use a visual popup to select exactly what type of layout you want. To use the feature, hover the mouse cursor over the maximize button of an app or press Windows+Z while an app is open. This will open a small popup consisting of different grid sizes based on your monitor size. You can select from 2 to 6 grids layouts.
