    I guess we should be happy even though we now know DirectStorage on WII was an arbitrary decision.

    But that's what every software firm does to get you to do to buy the new shiny. If they back port everything you'd never upgrade... I suspect they'll be other features that are Windows 11 exclusive soon enough. (To be fair to Microsoft they have push out plenty of Windows 10 feature packs).
