Subject: RE: Tech: They lied, Here's Windows 11
Well I had a change of plan and got an internal ssd instead of a usb drive and have transferred the Win 11 system onto that. The old Win hdd can serve as a cloned copy if needed. I looked at acronis but it seemed to be subscription software and for me (who generally dislikes paying for software anyway), that is a no go. I used Aoemi Backup Pro. It, together with their partioner pro (which I’d already used in free std form), were on some “Halloween bundle” offer which seemed reasonable to me.

As for Win 11 general usage, I’ve changed to single click and moved the start button to the left and it doesn’t really feel that different to me (although it would to mum who looks for differences rather than similarities) to using the OpenSuse Plasma 5 desktop.

I’d commented on wondering about MythTv before. Kodi works fine but I think its recording options with the mythtv plugin are weak. There was however a simple solution. I installed MythWeb on the server and that gives me quite a usable web interface I can use with Firefox on Windows.
