    <p>Sorry Brad, Windows 11 is being emasculated. </p><p><br></p><p>As a Stardock Start 10/11 user, I hope Stardock can bring sanity back to the Windows Desktop, and its capabilities. In any case, best of luck in your new venture.</p>

    <p>For the first time, I’m not upgrading Windows. I like Windows 10. I like the smart tile menu – I use a separate smart tile for my calendar and one for each of my email accounts. I love working that way and am angry the option would be taken from me. I hope Stardock finds a way to restore these features!</p>

    <p>As an additional comment, I don’t like the idea of Windows trying to copy the Mac or an Android phone in its interface. This is misdirected and is a product of Panos Panay’s ego.</p>

    <p>Hi Brad</p><p>good luck with the new job! </p><p>I won’t be upgrading to Win11; poor eyesight obliges me to change the display and scale to 150%; the taskbar takes 1/2 inch of my screen, the optimal solution: move it sideways. Not possible on Win11.</p><p>second: I use my laptop for work, volunteering, hobbies,&amp; normal use. I have a file management system that doesn’t fit with the way Win11 wants me to do, </p><p>third: I use non-Microsoft Apps- updating defaults is a nightmare. </p><p>maybe win11 looks pretty, but, had I installed it, I would have got rid of the background pictures and most of the Microsoft Apps, shaping my Win11 to the way I need it to serve my needs.</p><p>Alas, this is not going to be- Microsoft gave priority to pretty designs rather than substance..</p><p>maybe if Stardock can come up with a good app to address some of those shortcomings… </p><p>anyway, best of wishes</p>
