Windows 11 has been rolled out and is now (theoretically) available to everyone. But is it worth the download for gamers? Especially at the beginning of the rollouts, several websites reported reduced performance when gaming because new security features supposedly erode the performance. This naturally raises the question of whether a gamer should switch to the new operating system at all or whether the switch will bring more problems than advantages. Change despite skepticism?
