WINDOWS 11 DEVELOPMENT SLOW

Mostly thanks to the COVID-19 problem, work on Windows 11 has been slow. The education and commercial stores are being retired but alternatives are still far from ready. The Windows Store in 10 is not well designed or implemented. So immediately the direction for Windows 11 are muddy.

While Windows 11 is available for those who want to try it out, for most the OS is far from really ready for RTM. Microsoft is more or less positioning Windows 11 for Q4 when the next wave of computer hardware hits the street.

Most likely it will be 2023 before Windows 11 really firms up. That will allow Microsoft more time to figure out their strategy with the operating system.

DDR5 will force a CPU, RAM and motherboard purchase so gamers will be spending close to $1000 on a forklift upgrade. The Samsung 980 PRO 2TB cost much more than the X570 motherboard or Ryzen 3600 processor and the SSD will work fine on a DDR5 class motherboard.

First gen DDR5 hardware will be replaced with a second gen in 12 months which is more likely most will make a move. Prices will be better and performance will be more stable. Early hardware will stabilize with BIOS updates and drivers.

The AMD and Intel TPM approach will need to change to make it independant of a BIOS update. AMD AM4 went through over 5 cycles of processors which led to AGESA updates to support the new processors. Intel used to force motherboard sales for a new processors but that has slowly slightly. Motherboards can cost as much as a processor.
