    I have this secondary older machine at home that is now offering to update to W11, I wonder if I would loose performance compared to the current setup with W10. The cpu is 4770k with integrated HD Graphics 460 and 16gb ram.

    It’s working perfectly being my home music computer still. Anyone who knows if W11 would simply slow it down or if there is anything to gain in accepting and clicking ok? :dunno:

    You say your PC works perfectly, so why change.
    Don't let the Microsoft salesman talk you into anything.
    With version 11, your problems might just start.
    Stay strong and happy and say no thanks, I don't need it.

    I have a secondary system with the same 4770K processor and an Asus Sabertooth Z87 mb and 32 GB. It's already a miracle that a 10 year old system is able to run W11! I tried it about half a year ago. It runs OK without any issues but I only tried like maybe 5% of the applications I use so other stuff might not run so well? There's just too much bloatware in W11 and I didn't want to spend a week tweaking everything. So after a few days of playing around with it I copied back my W10 image and am perfectly happy with that. So like Beat16 & Marillionaire said. If your pc is already running fine on W10 there is absolutely nothing to gain by installing W11.

    I even don't have to read your whole question to provide you an answer: DON'T (!) update stuff for the sake of updating.

    Software are tools. If it does the job: Keep using it. When is the last time you upgraded your Iron? or your stove?

    I know very well not to touch a working system its just a secondary spare machine not my main stationary or main portable. my question was if there was anyone having a problem updating with a similar system or even if there was anything of interest for audio work in W11.

    I remember back when W11 came out there was nothing of interest but who knows, something could have happened since then . But I guess I will let it be then

    your headaches will start for sure if you upgrade your fully working PC. Same goes for plugins why always upgrade if they work properly. Stability before uncertainty.

    I always enjoyed being on the latest Windows, even back when Vista was a thing. With Windows 11, though, I really don't want to upgrade to the point I disabled TPM on the BIOS just to stop Microsoft from harassing me to upgrade. It started with a small message on Windows Update, then a notification in my taskbar, then they stop me for a few seconds to offer the upgrade before I even log in the goddamn computer.

    I like knowing my system and having my own workflow, but Microsoft insists on taking away simple things for no reason. Case in point: they took away all the options if you right-click the taskbar. Why? No one knows, but if you want to open the task manager in a timely manner, better start pressing Ctrl + Shift + Esc now.

    Windows 10 still works great here, and I plan to keep using it until it's not viable anymore. If you care about your workflow over everything else, do some research before updating and see if there's anything that now takes more clicks to do than before.

    That's exactly the point. W11 should run quite well on that machine but spending enough time to disable all the bloat can be time consuming and downright annoying. (Still running Win 7 on my older machine and boy, what a productive OS that was!)

    there are several slimmed down versions of win11 and win10, with all bloat removed or some of them. Flavors for everyone. Just google it. I Recommend Phoenix LiteOS 10 Ultralight Ultimate (17763.3650) (1.31gb) and WINDOWS 10 21H2 ENTERPRISE LTSC X-Lite (19044.2075) - by PHOENIXOS...

    Don't update or fix it if it ain't broke...unless you want it broken.

    Afaik only systems with the latest Intel CPUs with P and E cores benefit from 11. But even of that i am not 100% sure if it is not also in the latest W10.
    Edit
    To answer my own remark, after some reading this appears to have been fixed since W10 21H2.
