If they're still doing regular "feature updates" to Win10, then the Win11 upgrade, what with it's UI changes, and new incompatibilities, doesn't seem worth it.

Is Win10 21H2 fully-compatible with Alder Lake now? Or must one move to Win11 for that?

It seems like, at least for now, that Thread Director will be sub-par to Win 11's built in functionality. This will really affect laptops more than desktops as I understand it. But, other issues, like breaking older games, etc., may just be a permanent fixture for older software.

Pretty sure they will eventually update the Win 10 scheduler to be fully compatible with Alder Lake .... it will cost M$ a lot of potential sales if they don't.

After the Ryzen patch a lot of stuff runs slightly faster on 11 with AMD chips too so lets hope for sooner rather than later!
