What Windows 10 Did Better Than Windows 11

Microsoft seems to do everything it can to try to convince users to migrate to Windows 11, but at least for now, the majority of those who use laptops and PCs that run on the Redmond-based giant’s operating systems still prefer Windows 10. Maybe they know something other people don’t know.

First of all, we need to understand why Microsoft tries to convince us to upgrade our computers to Windows 11. It is, first of all, a marketing strategy. As long as many of the new laptops and desktop PCs come equipped with Windows 11 as soon as you buy them from the store, what else could Microsoft say other than insist that the upgrade to Windows 11 is the best choice? Surely, we’re not suggesting that the tech giant doesn’t care about the well-being of their customers, but let’s all be frank about this: we live in a world dominated by money, and many times, people will say what they don’t necessarily think in their attempt to earn more money. There’s nothing to blame for that.

Let’s see what Windows 10 did better than Windows 11, in our view:

More stability

Nobody says that Windows 11 is a bad operating system, but there are some things that Windows 10 did better. And it was somewhat obvious, considering that Windows 10 has been around for 8 years since its release back in 2015. Microsoft had a lot of time to update it with the right stuff to make it a mature and stable operating system. Users’ feedback was very important in the process, considering that Microsoft takes that into account to improve its products.

On the other hand, the latest Windows 11 is only two years old, as it came out back in October 2021. Although the operating system still brings some interesting new tech gimmicks compared to its predecessor, much more time is needed to say for sure that Windows 11 can be a mature and stable solution.

A better approach to gaming

When Windows 11 came out and started to achieve some popularity, numerous gamers started to complain that the operating system caused them trouble when they tried to run their favorite games. They claim they didn’t have such problems with the previous Windows 10.

Windows 10 is less intrusive

The following scenario might sound very familiar to us all: a company tries to invade your life in one way or another, such as taking your data and checking what you do online, while it invokes the horrible excuse that it actually tries to help you in some way. More and more companies apply a similar policy nowadays, and Microsoft is no exception. Windows 11 seems to have more ways to spy on its users than Windows 10, and it even does it by default. You need to turn off multiple settings to be sure that Microsoft won’t take a peek at what you do online or on your PC, and those settings don’t even clearly mention that they have something to do with telemetry.

More friendly with the PC resources

Considering that Windows 10 came out six years before Windows 11, it was normal for the former to be a lot more friendly with its users’ PC resources. However, this is still a great advantage, especially if you have an older laptop/PC. Not everybody is interested in hardcore gaming or video editing, for instance, which means that Windows 10 or even Windows 7 can be more than enough for their usual tasks while they use a PC.

Microsoft’s desperate plea to make people upgrade to Windows 11 also reminds us of a similar scenario that happened when Windows 10 came out. Numerous users were still determined to stay with Windows 7, although Microsoft has even offered Windows 10 for free.
