Here's what differentiates Apple's mode of operation in terms of software and hardware support compared to MS and Windows. MS tries to keep supporting old tech so much so that you can run the latest Windows 10 on a PC from the 2007/08 era. They still support 32 bit apps and programs. VGA is still fully supported etc etc.

This Apple dev looked at the supposedly new Win11 codebase. There's really nothing new. Win11 is primarily a new skin on Win10. It makes me think leaked Win11 may just be a fake created by some software developer.

Computer Mgt. still has icons from the XP era. That's why I refer to them as Microsloth. They are too lazy to do even the simple things that would make Win10 look and perform better. To improve the user experience. How ironic that XP stood for "Experience" and now 20 years later they're still giving you the same old dismal low res icons.

I would think that Windows On Arm would allow Microsoft to start fresh since there's no legacy hardware to support...

It's kind of like trying to make a U turn with the Titanic. There are already billions of Windows 7, 8.1, 10 computers in operation that use Intel and AMD CPUs with the x86 instruction set. The number or ARM devices that run the ARM version of Windows are a drop in the ocean. They're going to keep supporting older hardware for some time to come. They won't be able to break with the x86 past as quickly as Apple will now that they design their own chips.

I never tried the ARM version of Windows 10 but what I read about it indicated the performance was very lackluster. They can't simply copy Apple in this regard because they don't have anything that comes close to the M series SoCs.

I've never tried Windows On Arm either but I suspect that poor performance may be due to the lack of powerful hardware to run it on. Before the Apple Silicon Macs, what desktops or laptops had powerful Arm CPUs? Heck, even today, we are still waiting for them.

From what I've read, computer makers such as Dell and HP are looking to sell Arm based systems of their own and that Qualcomm has something in the works.

I'd also like to see how Windows On Arm runs on a Mac.

Apparently this build of windows has some performance improvements for Intel’s hybrid Lakefield processor, the one with a big core and some smaller cores. See: https://hothardware.com/news/windows-11-gives-hybrid-architectures-a-single-threaded-boost

So maybe there’s more than meets the eye to the next version of windows. Perhaps there’ll be some improvements to the kernel’s thread scheduler to better take advantage of a hybrid x86 processor like the upcoming Alder Lake. Let’s see what Microsoft says on June 24.

I would build a Gigabyte z390 or z490 (budget pending). These are well documented and the support here is better than any company.

If you want an Apple product I'd wait a moment as the industry catches up to Apple Silicon.
Im running a Z390 32gig of RAM and do audio all day long on it. Im using Reaper. I also do FCP and Motion. Those with 4K. If I use HDR video it slows it a bit. Audio is not a problem.

Except that the code base for windows 10 was the same code base as windows 7. Who knows how much of that code base was shared from vista, XP, 2k, Etc.

Most people do not even know that the computer mgt. is even there they have no use for it. In fact I likely have only probably used it 50 times in 20 years There is no real direct path to get there by clicking you have to know it is there and type it in the run field. So you are not likely to just happen to come across it. The icons are older then even windows XP, looks more like windows 98. But it is not just the icons it is also the window format also see below. If I had to guess it was meant to be removed but at the last min was left in for Legacy usage.

Just a quick note---there is indeed a quick and easy way to open "Computer Management" in Windows 10. All you have to do is to right-click on "This PC" and choose "Manage." That's been the way it has worked for as far back as I can remember.

I have problem to make that transitioning with Apple M1 Silicon Chip. I cannot have my x86 software to run on M1 Chip now. As it is not possible. On top of that How to run some other software that I have to use on x86. That it will not work with M1 Chip. I wonder how Penetration Testers who doing on Hacking to work with M1 Chip when there are some tools that does not work with M1 Silicon Chip. If that is the case we have to use Windows 10 PCs back again which is so dead troublesome as Windows 10 been giving a lot of problems with their Cumulative Updates. And being bog down with endless problems that never ends. We have to dump Windows 10 altogether and run Linux Natively on a PC. But macs on Intel works well than Linux flawlessly! It is all about the software developers. If there is no further support, then we are dead meat! Going back and forth. Some are things are still missing when you work on other operating system. Even with Linux. At the moment there is no Virtual box and VMWARE Support on M1 Chip. Only running on Beta with Parallels. Even though I cannot run X86 Windows only Windows 10 ARM. And there is no software support to download and use with Windows 10 ARM on beta. I am totally STUCK! If that is the case, those guys who run on PenTesting on their Intel x86 macs have to switch back to PC. Because they themselves know some software are not be able to run on M1 Chip at this time. And there is no way that the software that you run only support on Intel x86. Heavily rely on Rosseta 2 will not work at all.

Good to know! So you might happen to come across it in that case, though I have never.
