1. I think it will largely depend upon the cost Apple puts on their products running the next-gen of Apple silicon.
2. Then comes application compatibility. I can run old Windows app/games on Windows 10, but not all old and freeware apps would be compatible with M1 and so.
3. Cost of repairing and upgrading the products.
4. There is a learning curve for a new OS. Not everyone wants to leave something which is working fine for them and they are comfortable with.

We used to call windows 7 as Vista++ or 6.1(it was really version 6.1 of windows).

Better wait 4 or 5 years, if you plan to switch to mac.

Going from 256-512 MB that was enough and 1GB that was more the enough to 2GB minimum for a smooth experience was jarring at a time when the largest DIMM you could get was 512MB in most cases, and it was expensive.
The few drivers that were available were shoddy at launch and didn't improve till much later. People were annoyed bye the introduction the UAC to say the least. Intel componded the issue of drivers and performance with lobbing to accept the entry level 900 series chips ( crappy video card) into the VISA compliance list, in reality only the high end i945 chipset was truly compatible.
All in all Vista is usable especially when the hardware market cought up 2 years later. Truth is that Windows 7 launched with the same req and driver framework later when 90% of stuff had working Vista drivers or was made Vista Ready from the get go, so switching to W7 was easy and painless.

Part of that might be I had been using same old PC from windows 98 till XP, and right when I built my new PC, Vista got released and my PC was very much capable. My friend also had the same experience.
I had been using Vista for a long period even after 7 got released. Used 7 for few years, tried 8 and immediately switched to Linux.
I didn't like windows 8 even though I was using a Lumia phone with windows phone 8

Right now it's a shame windows 10 couldn't last more (like forever) but i do agree it was becoming increasingly difficult to know what each version has updated or not. And it also became kind of stagnant.
But i believe windows 11 will be a great OS, can't complain about a beta , although from my perspective even windows 8 (not 8.1 , i installed a preview like 1 year before release) wasn't bad. Only one that had real issues was vista

aren't they going to switch to lga by ryzen 6000 ?

YUKI93, 14 Oct 2021This should better be well-optimized for Windows 11.Well, socket has nothing to do with OS compatibility... and beside, MSFT and AMD is already making the fix for Ryzen W11 bug.

This should better be well-optimized for Windows 11.
