I am fully aware of Start 11s capabilities over Start 10, but the free start replacement programs have similar functions, i am not interested in Curtains as it was always about Windowblinds for me, and that was the reason i had to buy Start 10 in the first place to make WB 10 work correctly, if it was not necessary to make WB 10 work i would never have purchased it.
I would say the pack i am now using is giving me around 95% of what WB10 did for me on my machine, yes there are no like for like packs that do everything WB 10 can do, but your company , right now for Win 11, has Zero to offer me by way of comparison as you have NO working WB11.
There was as with all new Operating Systems, an insider preview, which has been around for a long time before we seen the Win 11 release on the 5th of last month, and the Win 11 planning topic was started almost 11 months ago, yet we are told a WB11 release may be years away depending who in this forum you ask. Other theme makers have put out working themes, but my go to Program WB even after all that has been said above, does not even have a Beta for us to test (something i would be happy to do) and may not for a long time to come.
I will say it again, i am not some mardy kid but a long time loyal customer of Stardock, who has happily handed over my money for Start 10 and Windowblinds 10 for many years not to mention how many masterskins i have purchased to support your Skinners as they need each other to work, i just want that relationship to continue into the future, if i had of known there would not be a WB11, there would have been no need to purchase Start 11 at this time as other free alternatives are easily available.
I would think if you designed programs that can only work alongside another programs when used together, you would understand many users would not be happy to have one without the other, and judging by the many comments in the WB 11 Planning topic i am not alone in my thinking.
