Re: This is one reason...
Have you discovered a new kind of geekery akin to train spotting. Reading old T&C's from wayback machine.
I'll get my duffle coat.

I too needed the AMD nested virtualisation and only really exited Win10 because of this needed feature. If it wasn't for M$ dragging it feet on nested virtualisation I'd have stuck with Win10.
WSL is ok from the small amount of playing about I've done with it, so too for WSA which works sort-of but is very limited in supported apps thus far.
There are a few glaring UI bugs and niggles in Win11 which they need to fix.
I believe Nvidia are inviting AMD to suck up the low/mid market whilst Nvidia go premium. Whether its some clever business ruse remains to be seen, but wouldn't it be lovely if AMD brought out something that's not only just as good as Nvidia's flagship, but much cheaper. That would be a great F you to Nvidia.
If AMD bring out a damp squib, fine, the 3080s have already dropped in price and their shiny new series will push previous GEN down a bit more eventually.
I'm still running a 2080 and its still good enough for all my games. No rush here.
I'd settle for being able to set the bar at the top of the screen (sans hacked work around) and also for the open apps from said bar to reliably allow me to switch between several instances of those apps. Right now it doesn't for explorer for example.
There's also issues with disappearing icons in the taskbar overflow feature.
No more bells and whistles please, fix the basics!
"...the vaccine roll out was a clear BREXIT benefit. Claiming otherwise just makes you look like an unreasoning fanatic."
My personal brexit calculator is -£100 I paid on an import due to customs theft. How much benefit have you measurably accrued?
The wrongness of your post aside, the bit I can agree with is defending Europe against Russia's brand of expansionism. To do that you need to have a strong nato and stop buying Russian Energy.
Get self sufficient and let them rot into insignificance as their economy drops *or* they participate in the world like decent people and stop playing coldwar hero.
My personal use case is Nested VMs for Ryzen processors. MS has been dragging its feet for 5ish years on sorting that out on Windows 10 and only got as far as the Dev channel for some very limited support.

Was happy to find enabling all the required bits in bios made my machine worthy of Windows 11 so no massive outlay for new parts!
They could start by fixing the randomly vanishing and reappearing volume icon from the system tray.
My personal wishlist also includes finally introducing nested virtualisation support on AMD processors for the general public. This preview BS has been going on far too long.
What you're describing can be explored in a book called "Snakes in Suits" ISBN-10 : 9780061147890. A highly recommended read for anyone interested in spotting and attempting to root out psychopaths in the workplace.
Right now, it seems the whole board is infested with them.
"Demand for EVs outstripped supply and there are long waiting list and lead times for new high-profile EVs."
If demand is outstripping supply then this plan is window dressing at best. Surely now is the worst time to buy a this type of car due to demand pushing prices up which gives poorer returns on the taxpayer 'investment'. Also who gets this money? Nissan? Renault? I'm failing to see how those foreign car companies taking tax cash benefits the uk as a whole.
And he fought a (good/bad) fight. Delete as appropriate. Anyone remember the Doublespace and drivespace fiasco? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stac_Electronics#Microsoft_lawsuit Just one of many examples of dodgy practices.
Still. I'm typing this on a very stable Windows10 box that brings me hours of fun and productivity, so its not all bad from my perspective.
"...It's $399 or £399"
Is it just me who hates it when these companies equate $ to £ and screw over British consumers? I know the £ has devalued somewhat but its still pretty far off actual parity.
I also happen to think its too much for a fricken PHONE, but wouldn't begrudge someone their opportunity to fondle their slab.
Anywhere between £203 and £715 is a ridiculous variance even for a fairly large quantity of ram as 64Gig.
Perhaps they're skimming off of the money saved by every gamer buying Ryzen chips.
Another prime example of a nanny state not putting children's welfare in the hands of those responsible, the parents. You wouldn't let a kid behind the wheel of a car anymore than you should allow a kid with a sophisticated computer in their pocket not have 'nanny' software blocking objectionables. You'd hide the damn keys.
Perhaps this is another excuse to ban or regulate VPN use further down the road.
