From the comparison of the installation rate data, even the installation rate of Window7 is 4.7%, and the installation rate of the very popular Window10 has reached 80.34%. Although Window11 is a new system, there is still a lot of room for improvement in the installation rate , but a year later, the installation rate is not as good as Windows7, which is a bit surprising.

Judging from the current user feedback, Window11 may not be as good as the previous generation of Window10.

At the same time, there are still many problems in Windows 11, such as not sending links to wifi networks
