So, having selected the option to not install Win 11 yet and continue with 10, it has been forced upon me.
After a power down yesterday, a screen appeared with three options:
1) Decline the free upgrade (which sounded a bit like "now or never" to me)
2) Upgrade now
3) Schedule an update.

No options to close or delay, had to choose one. So I went for "schedule an update."
This, I think also had just two options:
1) Update now
2) Update a few minutes after reaching your desktop.

At this point, there was a mishap and I lost power and when it was returned, hey presto, this had gone and my update page status had changed from Pending Install to the "Your device is compatible, we'll let you know when it's ready..."

Today, everything slowed down, checked update page which told me it was installing Win 11. When this had finished, I was one restart away from completion and nothing I could do.

So, here we are 2hrs 20 mins later, Win 11 is installed and all the other updates just keep on coming. All seemingly for round corners and a relocated Start button.

Can't shift the feeling of being violated by a butt-elephanting from Microsoft.

When building an application, when is the most important time to consider the User Experience?
They are the ones we write code for, right?
