PC diehards are wrong: Why I love Windows 11’s controversial new look

PC enthusiasts bemoan Windows 11's redesigned Start Menu and Taskbar, but there's actually a lot to like.

Let me start with a disclaimer: I am primarily a Mac user writing about Windows 11. For more than a decade, I've used a MacBook Pro as my primary work computer. I'm no stranger, however, to Microsoft's operating system. Prior to my embrace of macOS, I used a Windows PC at my job and at home, starting way back with Windows 95. (I recall my Windows XP years fondly.) Windows 10 was never my day-to-day operating system, but I covered its release and have banged on Windows 10 laptops and desktop for years for product reviews.
