I'm staying in Win10 for most of my ThinkPads. Win11 is still rather borked.

I agree.

How about neither

I'm running W11 on some machines and it's perfectly fine. But it's missing a few things that I like (seconds on the clock, for instance) which has me keeping my main machines on W10.

It's also worth nothing that all of my ThinkPads have 2 SSDs and I primarily boot into Linux Mint, so Windows is my secondary OS.

to display the seconds probably need to edit the registry

One would think, but nope. MS has removed that feature entirely. For performance reasons. The solution is to run a bit of freeware, but the freeware didn't work well for me.

How a modern i9 processor cannot handle displaying seconds is beyond me. As a coder, that's some garbage code if that kind of thing is a performance issue. ๐Ÿ™‚

oh they got rid of the registry hack? Bummer!

I hate windows 11. Tbh I also hate windows 10 but itโ€™s better than the locked down garbage fire that is 11

Win10 if not win7. I upgraded to 11 some time ago and I regret it. I can't imagine the drag n drop on task bar is still missing. Also they put a short context menu when you right click. But I find it useless since 99% of the time I will choose more options to switch to the long menu. Things only got more complicated.
For me, the only upside in win11 is the interface that was reworked. It looks nicer but the experience is less pleasant than in previous versions.

drag and drop to taskbar is coming back I think. If it hasn't already. But yeah that was pretty terrible.

Running Windows 7 is impossible on 4th Gen AMD Ryzen APU due to lack of GPU and WLAN driver support. Even if you managed to get drivers working you'll have more pain on installing necessary updates in past decade.

have you ever updated to Windows 11 build 22621? Drag and drop to taskbar is usable on this version.

I updated to latest stable which is 22622. Maybe they introduced it in the version you mentioned then they removed it again. I read this somewhere on microsoft forum.

If you prefer stability then Windows 10 Version 21H2 (Build 19044). If you want Windows 11 then make sure you're going to use 22H2 (Build 22621).

If you can deal with activation issue yourself, you might want to check Windows 10 Enterprise IoT LTSC 2021 for debloated Windows 10 experience.

Since you asked about this I'm sure you have applications that cannot be run under Linux distro or Wine/VM.
