    this what makes no sense is just opens them up for problems down the road. either restrictions are NOT required or they are it can be be both.

    let systems un supported install 11 but then offer no support or UPDATES, is just legal nightmare waiting to happen for them imo

    Well Samsung also stops supporting perfectly working mobile devices after 2 years.

    Pretty sure MS can get away with not updating an OS as well.

    Sadly e-waste is the future so we can provide our ancestors with rare metals 1000 years from now when they dig up a landfill.

    a company like Apple would have said "f you all, or you buy a new computer or you are f'd", microsoft cannot take those chances, so they though "if you have enough knowledge and comfort on editing your registry, you probably can use W11 in a not that dumb way, or at least take the risk", tpm and secureboot really can boost up security on computers but sadly it will take some years for us to throw away our computers and buy new ones (in my case, any of my 5 windows computers have TPM 2.0)

    My i7 5960X is too old to have built in TPM, the TPM module for my Asus X99-E WS mainboard is end of life and out of stock. Yet my PC still runs everything I throw at it in 3840x1600 fine and still scores in the top 93% on Time Spy Extreme. Only Guild Wars 2 runs like crap, it is unbelieveably CPU heavy. So no, I will not buy a new mainboard, CPU and RAM just to be able to run Windows 11. Windows 10 gets another 4 years of support, I think my PC will also last that long.

    Edit: Actually scratch that bad GW2 performance. I didn't launch it in years, so had outdated graphis settings. From supersampling to native, DX11 rendering enabled, everything else maxed out, all is fine.

    Well there are a few systems out their that are no win 11 compliant now, but a cpu upgrade will make them compliant (1600x,etc) so you could install win 11 now (if your a masochist) and upgrade later

    btw Anyone with a Gigabyte X570 mobo will get an error code once you enable fTPM in the bios. My code on my Gigabyte X570 Master mobo was always AA, now it is showing 9E which is happening for everyone with the ability to see codes.

    Even with the latest F35d bios which is a Win 11 supported bios the code remains the same. btw 9E is not an error code and probably nothing to worry about, it's a after post code that's listed as Reserved, or in other words secret code.

    Hopefully Gigabyte releases a F36 bios that fixes the issue. Like i said probably not an issue but i like my code to be AA that way i know everything is fine.

    the best solution for this little problem would be ''Microsoft'' selling their company to somebody with some insight in operating systems and what people actually need
    , somebody who wouldn't make a stupid mistake and 1000's of other ones that didn't need to be there in the first place ...
    you've got a 1 and a 0 , and what do people do with it ? nothing but junk is produced by a 1 and a 0
