If you can do all the work, perfect.
In my case some applications which I regularly use for the trading, started to gradually stop working, so I decided to upgrade to Win10, of course make a clean installation, not upgrade directly.

Did you try with Unattended or MDT installation of Windows 1x?
no, it came pre-installed with a new computer. I decided to upgrade rather than replace an old motherboard that started to overheat.

I had decided to ditch the MS account and OneDrive and all the other MS spying BS but found that the get-round didn't work so signed in with my old MS account, then made a new local account, and then set about deleting all the MS stuff.

But, having uninstalled OneDrive 2 weeks ago I now find the bastard spying bot is still active and reporting back to MS HQ twice a !!!"£!&*!*&^ day 👀😵‍💫

Unfortunately, more and more Microsoft products come loaded with telemetry processes.

But there are several ways to block some of them with 3rd party software, or natively using powershell.

Another tip for setting up Windows to avoid 3rd party bloatware is on one of the first screens is the 'which country are you in', if you scroll down there should be a choice 'The World', if you select that the 3rd party bloatware, which is all regional specific, won't load onto your desktop. You can always change the country selection after the set up process completes,

Maybe the problem in the W11 is push all the users to the cloud, and many users opted stay on W10.

Understand there are fix, to keep using an local account or domain joined, but the question is necessary a couple of requirements (there a fix too) in a certain of time, maybe pass to mandatory.

I see in my case, i didn´t catch anything good to make an upgrade and consume a less resource than W11.

Many pc's produced shortly after the release of Windows 10 are not compatible with Windows 11, just like many Windows 7 pc's are not compatible with Windows 8[+]. I consider this a blessing for my Windows 10 and 7 pc's. My Windows 11 pc is simply a security monitor--even in classic desktop mode with cloud nonsense disabled, the taskbar remains in centered format like a cell phone. I really never understood the point of making a pc look like an obsolete Windows Mobile device. I'm guessing that other Windows user are in the same boat.

And contrary to Microsoft's support termination notice to Windows 7 users, I still get frequent security updates to my Windows 7 pc.
