Default Windows 11

Will Windows 11 fulfill its role as the odd-number savior? I don't know. I only got as far as reading that they make it more difficult to make your 3rd-party browser the default browser. And supposedly Android apps are supported.

https://www.cnet.com/news/windows-11...-what-to-know/

Comments welcome.

Same pig, new lipstick? ;-)

Yeah, I know, not fair. The Android apps thing should be popular with the 'Droid crowd, maybe even wildly.

I does appear to be mostly cosmetic and going for a Mac vibe.

Computer sales have skyrocketed, and maybe this is to make Windows prettier.

"More Mac-like" .... always sets my teeth on edge. If I wanted a Mac-like computer, I'd buy a Mac. Nobody does Mac better than Mac, right?

You are right, Steve. I apologize. Let me reword this. They rounded the corners of the windows and centered the taskbar icons.

In other words, not Mac like at all!

Perhaps more Windows 11-like.

No need for YOU to apologize, Andrew. It was C|Net's wording "A new, more Mac-like interface: Windows 11 features a clean design with rounded corners, pastel shades and a centered Start menu and Taskbar."
