Stardock dropping the ball on WB11 has been an opportunity to some of us to broaden our customising Horizons.
That's not totally fair to say Stardock dropped the ball on WB11, we don't know All the Facts, but can only assume what's going on with what little bits of info we have received. It's been said that they are waiting for Microsoft to be done with their tweaking of Win 11 enough to start the process of developing WB11, if you were to build a house, you start with the foundation, which consists of concreate, but, you have to wait for the concreate to be poured into your foundation, so now it's a waiting game, so do you go ahead and still build a house without the concreate (forms), or plug along without it, which wouldn't make a very sturdy house. Now, do you blame the people who built the forms (Stardock), or blame the people who delivers the concreate (Micorsoft)? Would I like to have a WB11 and SKS11, sure, I like others (only speaking for myself) can wait till it's available, and if it's going to be a while, then so be it, I like Windows 11 just as is, without any skinning, and as long as Win 10 is still supported, I can skin all I want, granted SKS could use some improvements, but, I've learned to work around it for this many years, what's a little more time. I know there will be those who will disagree with me, but that's ok.
I know and have heard all the analogies why we do not have a WB11 don5318, other methods of customisation have worked with what they have right now, adapting and making something out of what they have to work with, this is why i love being a Beta Tester for Theme Makers at other places, seeing something develop knowing an update will be on it's way when necessary. I know themes and WB are not the same, but they are not that alien to each other. I just feel the wait is and will harm the brand, a brand i used to love, and if i feel this way, others who are less interested but have used WB in the past will care less and less about why.
First it was just those of us who experimented and were already using Win11 that spoke up about when and how, that wait for whatever the reason is starting to be felt by more senior users and members.
I have said it before, I am more than happy for those who like yourself are happy to stay with Win 10 and WB10, or even to think Win11 looks fine all by itself, the world would be boring if we were all the same, I myself have walked my own path and i am delighted to have created something from nothing, or something that "can not be done" in favour of waiting and sticking with an OS that some of us due to commitments can no longer use as an everyday thing. I am happy you are happy with were you and WB are at now, no problems here about that.
