Re: Windows 11

The Flighting info they have been sending out is what we are on in the Dev and Beta group are close to RTM but we still have not seen Android Apps in the Windows Store. I currently have build 168 on 2 SSDs one set to flight Dev and the other Beta. I am hoping to see the Android apps soon

Windows 11 comes with a new Microsoft Store rebuilt with an all-new design making it easier to search and discover your favorite apps, games, shows, and movies in one trusted location. We look forward to continuing our journey to bring Android apps to Windows 11 and the Microsoft Store through our collaboration with Amazon and Intel; this will start with a preview for Windows Insiders over the coming months.

The problem with that is the Android Apps are from the Amazon App Store. You won't get any apps that are just in the Play Store, and as Google move to a new app bundle format, it'll be interesting to see how easy and cost effective it will be for companies to publish apps in two different ways in addition to two app stores

To bring these benefits to more users and focus on modern Android distribution that benefits all developers, Google Play will start requiring new apps to be published with the Android App Bundle starting August 2021. This will replace the APK as the standard publishing format.

I do not foresee an issue tbh, you can sideload and there are literally billions of apks out there in the wild not on the app store you can play with.

Plus I am sure devs who want to publish on Play could easily enough put their code in an APK also

Re: Windows 11

The only Windows updates I allow anywhere near are the ones for Windows Defender. My Win 7 (SP1) is running fine & dandy, although gaming is becoming an issue . . . not necessarily due to the OS software, but due to the extravagant and expensive hardware now required to run them.

Gaming (older classics) on Linux is coming on at a nice pace, for anything else there's a PS4 or PS5 to look forward to

Yes I have the ESU bypass. Linux version I am looking at will possibly be Zorin (will be testing it though first) or pehaps mint, haven't decided yet.
