    Well I just downloaded Windows 11 for free. It was offered to me on my Windows 10 download screen so I thought I would give it a try.
    All went well and it downloaded and installed very fast on one of my laptops and dun so without a hitch. It works very well but I would suggest you
    back up files on other machines because you might loose them.

    Overall it is extremely fast, a lot faster than Windows 10. If you use Windows 10 a lot you might find some difficulty with W 11. It will take some
    effort to adjust. So far I have been using W-11 for a day and found no problems but again it's a little difficult to adjust from W 10. I have some other PCs at home,
    all working W-10. I will save updates on these until I feel safe to upgrade all my PCs to W-11 in case I run into any snags.

    Today's Win 10 patches are strange. On two computers, it went easily and fast. On two others, it took 40 minutes to complete the reboot.

    Edit to add: apparently it has to do with devices connected via USB. The two laptops that took 40 minutes each have an external USB3 HD.

    Similar phenomenon this month: a 10 year old Lenovo laptop installed and rebooted in 5 minutes. A brand new Acer laptop took an hour...
    And not USB related: the Acer had nothing connected to it.

    Edit to add: the culprit is Malwarebytes. Before pressing the restart button, quit malwarebytes! (Right-click icon in system tray).

    Update to win 10 21H2 went fast and without a glitch on all computers. Took less than 5 minutes, each.

    Today's patches took anywhere between 20 to 45 minutes, depending on how old the PC and its processor are.

    Today's patches: 3 PCs updated without a problem, though one of them installed in 2 batches, meaning it had to be rebooted twice.
    A fourth PC failed to install the update, rolled back, but is giving errors now.

    Correction: they all ended up rebooting twice.

    Today's patches are an odd beast. On two computers, an old and a new laptop, it took minutes to install and update. On two others, a PC and a 2-year-old laptop, it took 1 hour and 40 minutes!

    Edit to add: and all of them subsequently installed another patch with another reboot.

    So, 2 reboots required
