“What’s that syndrome that involves one falling in love with their abuser?” I asked Hilda, a Chromebook-owning co-worker whom I often playfully debate with. “Stockholm,” she replied. “Yeah — I think I’ve developed Stockholm syndrome with Windows. It’s put me through the wringer, but I still love it.”

However, with the introduction of Windows 11, Microsoft’s captivating, hypnotic charms are losing their power over me. I really wanted to like Windows 11, but I don’t. Why? The same reason why the iPhone 13 upgrades suck — most of the updates don’t add significant benefits to my workflow.
