Meanwhile I think I'll be waiting a bit anyways, the ancient game I always play has enough issues already (DirectX9 errors you say ......), and don't know if Win 11 will cause it any extra problems
If you have 200GB or so spare on a drive then dual boot Windows 11 as a test. You could install the ancient game in there and see how it is?Meanwhile I think I'll be waiting a bit anyways, the ancient game I always play has enough issues already (DirectX9 errors you say ......), and don't know if Win 11 will cause it any extra problems

Just checked the laptop and it's disabledWHAT THE......?!!
Although I'm not running Windows 11 in production I am checking after each patch Tuesday for updates for it. Whilst rummaging through system settings whilst it checked for updates I came across something that is dumber than the dumbest thing from the dumb place....
SMB 1.0 is ENABLED by default in Windows 11.
Words fail me. Microsoft themselves strongly recommend that it is removed, see here, and yet they ship their shiny new version of Windows with it enabled. [Expletives deleted].
SMB is the Small Message Block protocol, it's used in the main for file sharing systems using the Common Internet File System (CIFS). There are currently three versions of SMB (1.0, 2.0 and 3.0). SMB 1.0 was found as long ago as 2018 to contain a serious vulnerability that would allow an attacker to install malware on your PC, in 2019 Microsoft recommended that users disable SMB 1.0.Sorry, but what does SMB do in windows ?
