    Hello @Paul Black,

    is it still so with "Windows 11"? From this thread and from those over at 11 Forums I gathered people are suspecting the opposite.

    All of what Paul posted links for is Win 10. It is impossible to state one way or the other if it is true or not for a product that does not exist. "Exist" being defined as at least in public testing, like Insider. Anything else is pure guessing.

    For those interested to test W11 with a local account, no need for a Microsoft account, I just posted instructions on our sister site Eleven Forum: Install Windows 11 Home using Local Account | Windows 11 Forum

    Perhaps instead of "Windows 11" it can be renamed to "Portholes 1"?
    I'm OK with MS naming it Windows 11. I do have to admit I would prefer MS to use a name that also say's what build you are using. I feel it would make it easier for the normal everyday user to know what version they are using. IMHO build numbers can be very confusing.

    I haven't installed the so called 'Windows 11" on a VM to have a peek but I have looked at numerous screen shots posted here and elsewhere. I also watched the longish video over at petri.com by Brad Sams which gives a decent look at this new OS.

    I agree with Sams assessment that the released version will be different to this leaked one. It looks to me like a typical work in progress version of Window (i.e. either a late alpha or early beta version). There is quite a bit of stuff in the GUI that isn't complete. I am certainly not reading too much into a leaked version of Windows.

    Finally before I get all steamed up about this new OS I want to know how much have MS changed under the hood. Like what impact will the under the hood changes have on drivers etc?

    From what I've read, my take on the leaked Windows 11, is that it's a simple "change of clothes" for Windows 10 most if not all of the inner workings of the OS Remain unchanged. It could well have been designed by the Marketing Department.

    The lack of changes to the coding will also appeal to the third party software and Hardware manufactures as it does not Need updates to the existing products.

    It will probably appeal to the phone generation as they seem to love changing the look of things every 24 hours

    WRT the whole Microsoft account for logins:

    While this may seem like a bane to many, I personally find it a good thing. My licenses are tied to my account digitally, and whenever I've reinstalled Windows 10 (both on my old rig that I ran Insider Preview builds on live, and my (now not so) new rig (It's a year old!!!!! Time flies!) I've never once had to enter a product key, simply letting the install go and then logging in with my Microsoft account.

    The leaked W11 install did not do this - however I used the same Windows 7 key that is tied to my actual bare metal install of Windows 10 (from my old TechNet subscription) and it activated. Didn't even have to enable Insider on it (though my M$ account is also linked to the Insider program from before when I was a regular Insider enthusiast).

    Say what you want about these corporate-based logins that the companies are providing - but it's a heck of a lot easier for someone like Apple to say "To restore your files, open XYZ app and log in with your AppleID" than to say "You need to make sure you still have access to the account you used 14 years ago when you first set up your backup account on your device when we released the very first iPhone" or something remotely like that.

    I mean, you can always choose *NOT* to use their services by not using their OSs....

    And the majority of have now allowed you to use your own preferred email address with their account systems - so I can use my Microsoft account as an additional email address with my newly created AppleID if I were to get an iDevice, or I can use my GMail address / G-Suite email address with my Microsoft account, etc.

    I use a Microsoft account, mainly to get access to OneDrive. I have on several occasions logged in with a local account. I've not had any problems activating this way. Having it Linked does help but its not a necessity.
    My PC's have multiple Digital Licenses for almost all Editions of Windows 10. The one currently installed is the one that ends up linked to my Microsoft Account. And its the only one shown as linked for that device. As soon as I switch from local to a Microsoft Account that device is relinked.

    Is it true that Windows 11 is based on Linux/Unix and not on Windows NT? That is the rumor that I have heard over and over the last couple of weeks.
