Microsoft has recently unveiled Moment 3, an updated feature for Windows 11 that offers a range of advantageous enhancements and performance improvements. This update holds the potential to persuade numerous Windows 10 users to make the transition to Windows 11.

In a blog post published shortly after the release of Moment 3, Microsoft provided a comprehensive account of the company's year-long efforts to enhance the experience for over a billion users worldwide. The post serves as a condensed overview of all the changes implemented in the Insider channels throughout the past year, now incorporated into the Moment 3 update.

Panos Panay, Microsoft's Executive Vice President and Chief Product Officer, had once reminded people that its latest OS was “all about quality” and once again, the firm has reminded users that Windows 11 is the "most reliable version of Windows ever" in the list of highlights.

  • The blog post reads:
    • We improved frequently used shell interactions like Taskbar, Notifications, and Quick Settings by as much as 15%!
    • Getting users into productivity faster by improving the time it takes to get to the desktop by 10% and reducing the impact of startup apps by over 50%.
    • Making PCs more sustainable with our new Energy Recommendations and Carbon-Aware Windows Update. We see a 6% average reduction in energy consumption for the users who use the recommended energy settings
    • Windows 11 is the most reliable version of Windows ever, with recent updates continuing to improve reliability.
    • Microsoft Edge starts up faster than ever before and saves memory with features like Sleeping Tabs, which saves up to 83% of memory for background tabs.
    • The new Teams app for Windows is 2x faster while using half the resources.

Amidst a series of negative news stories, system crashes, and software glitches associated with Windows 11 and its subsequent updates and fixes throughout the year, Microsoft has taken an interesting approach by publishing a blog post that highlights the positive aspects of their latest Moment 3 update. This move can be seen as an effort by the tech giant to reinforce confidence in their product, especially considering the mixed reception Windows 11 has received thus far.

Microsoft's extensive list is "all about improvements" they claim to have made, ranging from environmentally friendly PC enhancements to faster startup times for Microsoft Edge, and even increased user productivity by reducing desktop access time. While the Moment 3 update has been generally well-received, if not eagerly awaited, Microsoft still faces the challenge of convincing more users to migrate to Windows 11.

Should I install Windows 11?

Recent negative headlines have certainly added to this challenge. However, the blog post could serve as a persuasive tool for those hesitant about upgrading, offering a comprehensive overview of the main changes and potentially alleviating concerns in the decision-making process. It is worth noting that some of the listed enhancements remain somewhat vague, leaving room for interpretation.

Undeniably, Moment 3 represents a positive step forward and showcases the significant progress made by Windows since the troubled days of Windows Vista. By providing consumers with a detailed blog post outlining all the changes made, Microsoft aims to simplify the process of convincing users to upgrade. The extent of persuasion achieved by this approach remains to be seen and will undoubtedly be determined by individual users' responses.

What do you think? Is Windows 11 all about quality? Would you consider upgrading if you have not yet?

    > Is Windows 11 all about quality?
    You’re kidding, right?

    > Would you consider upgrading if you have not yet?
    No. No. No. Not just no, but hell no.
    W11 is utterly shite compared to W10.

    I still prefer Windows 10, because they have removed a lot of useful features in Windows 11, especially the support for apps in taskbar such as NetSpeedMonitor, or even the stupid thing they made in Windows 11 with the double right click menu to get all the previous right click options.

    1. Jeff M.S. said on May 31, 2023 at 11:09 am

      True. The loss of NetSpeedMonitor in the taskbar is unacceptable. It is one of the best ever Windows tools for monitor speeds and quickly accessing network-related settings.

    I see no reason to downgrade to Windows 11 and lose a ton of features. Usually people “upgrade” when they are forced to – that’s how it has been since Windows 8. Microsoft twist everyone’s arm and people reluctantly “upgrade” when they have no choice. It’s a blackmail-based business model.

    Since Windows 7 Microsoft has been adding extra clicks to pretty much everything you do. That is not a productivity enhancement. They have also gutted many of the most useful features. Loaded it with more bugs than ever, become highly unresponsive to customer needs and feedback, changed the UI so many times people’s heads are spinning and filled it with so much data collection and advertising that it’s no longer an OS… which should do nothing more than facilitate the execution of games and productivity programs.

    Adding an extra layer of absurd hardware requirements to force people to spend insane amounts of money on parts and systems whose prices have as much as tripled in price just shows how disconnected they are from reality.

    At this point I wouldn’t upgrade to Windows 11 even if they put a gun to my head.

    I saw Microsoft’s original Windows 11 announcement as also tacitly announcing that Windows 10 was now stable, both bug-wise and feature-set.

    For me the OS is just the foundation to run third-party apps to do what I need. OS stability is paramount, and the ever-evolving Windows 11 isn’t that. Well, not until Windows 12 is announced :)

      I agree.
      From my job duties, I have built up my skills from MS-DOS for Microsoft operating systems and various other systems as well. The Internet has brought real-time globalization and now “AI” technology is making it increasingly difficult to even “distinguish between real and virtual or fake”. Before the Internet, we were happy Windows XP. In this day and age, when we are faced with real challenges (AI), we will undeniably need an operating system with the latest countermeasures.
      But that doesn’t mean I need the “latest technology”.
      Moreover, my family and I have moved to a digital detox lifestyle, so my current “Windows_NT 10.0 19044” is sufficient for us.
      Until the support expiration date arrives, I will keep a wait-and-see approach.

    At that time, I could not possibly want anything. Windows 7 is still superior to anything that came after it. I would upgrade if Microsoft was able to create an operating system as usable as Windows 7.

    Microsoft has removed all Windows ISO images from its server. Unable to download older versions of Win10.

    1. John G. said on May 30, 2023 at 11:17 pm

      I beg your pardon, however it seems that W10 is still shown, see link below:

      1. Leonardo said on May 31, 2023 at 2:09 pm

        This ISO from the website you informed is not the 22H2, it is a new ISO released on May 9 with an update for Secure Boot, BitLocker, UEFI firmware and protection against rootkits.

        It is still possible to download Win10/Win11, but only the version released on May 9, 2023. Downloads of previous ISO versions such as 22H2 have been blocked by Microsoft. All third party tools such as TechBench, Rufus, HeiDoc and WinToolUSB were blocked from accessing the MS server.

    Microsoft shot itself by creating strict requirements for Windows 11. Especially with enterprise, who is going to buy new hardware just to run Windows 11? I think many users don’t see much advantage in the upgrade even if they can. In some ways, there are some disadvantages with 11 over Windows 10. A good product sells itself, it does not need to be forced onto people.
