Windows 11...time to upgrade?

I hear tell that Windows 11 goes back to the pre-Windows 10 model. No forced updates and control over the OS environment again.

Google just stopped supporting Windows 7 and it's annoying to me. But I'm confused on the hardware requirements for Windows 11, it says that one needs Intel 8th Gen or later...but Windows 7 support only extends to Intel 6th Gen, after that it wouldn't work.

So what gives? Can my 10 year old Latitude upgrade to Windows 11?

Windows 11 is okay, but one thing that annoys the F out of me is there is no option to give labels to the tabs you have open in your taskbar; they will always just be a bunch of icons. So when I've got a bunch of word documents open, for example, and want to jump between them, they stack on top of each other and I have no idea which Word icon is which.

Apparently you can download a third party mod to fix this, but I'm a weird purist and don't like installing non-official mods onto any program or game. So I'll just suffer until Microsoft receives enough complaints to patch it.

Windows 8 support ended earlier this month an 10'll be over with in a couple years. If you're sticking with Windows ya may as well go with 11 an learn ta deal with whatevers up with it. I read MS is gonna stop seliing 10 keys soon so if ya wanna go with that instead better d/l the installer and however all that works before long o.o
