i guess I will move to Ubuntu

Surprised to see Windows 11 version 21H2 Home and Pro editions here. That was quick. Windows 12 could be around the corner.

I’m surprised to see MS Office on the list, that means they have something better to offer us but I know it’s not going to be MS 365. I know they’re building their A.I very well but we can only expect something huge since they’re not going to support these sws. thanks for the updates!
