    <p>My wife’s 10-year-old w10 won’t boot from any hard drive, just DVD and USB. So I gave her an i5 with Pop-os and Chromium, so far so good. No w11 worries here.</p>

    <p>As I was listening to this, if I recall correctly, I believe it was on a Windows Weekly episode back when Mac OS Big Sur was launching that Paul mentioned how he thought it was great how well Apple did updates. When they come out with a new UI it’s consistent through the experience. While Windows 11 is nowhere near hitting that threshold yet, I do have to give them credit for saying here’s 10 the familiar system you know. Here’s 11 a future operating system.</p><p><br></p><p>I was relating that thought process to the hardware requirements I just keep hearing Paul rant about. Apple who produces the operating system and the hardware stops supporting hardware that is "functional" but is now "obsolete" As someone who last purchased a dedicated Windows PC 7 years ago in 2015, No I’m not running the latest and greatest there but it works. And in order for the the software to get better and be able to really leave A LOT of legacy behind Microsoft needed to set hardware requirements strictly so they can write for a smaller stack and start working on optimizing Windows to work at it’s very best. Mac OS on my 2019 Macbook Pro is nearly flawless in my own opinion because the system knows what the hardware is capable of and is optimized to that hardware.</p><p><br></p><p>Sorry for my rant, just get tired of the I want my cake and to eat it too mentality that I see a lot lately.</p>
