No Win 11 for me for a while I think (for personal use anyway)
Sorry for the length, I was basically researching while typing, and got carried away :-)
When I first started reading about 11, nothing seemed to be a useful upgrade from 10 for my use case, and some things seemed a step backwards.
I'm mostly a gamer on my personal PC (alongside web, general productivity etc), and that's been my main driving reason to stick with Windows, and despite MS pushing Windows 11 for gamers in adverts, benchmarks have shown it's actually slower than Windows 10 most of the time (more things running in the background I'd guess, but this might improve over time).
In general, I just really don't like the way MS is moving Windows, so I suspect Windows 10 may be my last version for home use, at least as a main OS.
I'm thinking of going back to dual-boot, likely Mint as main OS, Win 10 as secondary, and only use Windows when I need to. I might update 10 to 11 when 10 becomes EoL, just for security patching etc.
For productivity, I've been using Open/Libra Office for years, almost all my own notes and documents are in .txt files anyway. So that's fine, and I've regularly used Firefox, Brave and other browsers, so no issues there either. I also have Linux on a NAS, and Pi-Hole etc. So not like I'm new to Linux.
So that just leaves gaming. Probably 95% of my recent games are in Steam, and while only some are native Linux, most others show as compatible with Proton (Steams custom Wine implementation).
A not so quick look on protondb.com, and currently the top 100 games on Steam show as 80% Gold++ Linux compatible (or native). Only 10% don't work at all.
Interestingly, most of the failed games seem to be multiplayer focused, PUBG etc. Most likely DRM/anti-cheat not working under Proton.
I have no interest in multiplayer games, so a switch to Single player games and the top 100 now shows 92% Gold++ compatible with Linux (or native). Only 1 game actually failed to work, with 3 not being rated yet.
For the top 1000 single player games, 59% are native Linux! I'm guessing lots of these will be smaller indie titles in there, as they are often cross platform.
This is actually way better than I expected! A huge shift since I last checked Linux gaming compatibility about a year or two ago.
Seems a tool called Lutris can also be used to get many Ubisoft, Origin (EA) and Epic games to work as well. I have a few games there, but non I play regularly.
I might be having a busy weekend!
