    Users of old hardware rejoice!

    You can use your PC safe in the knowledge that the next time you turn it on, Microsoft wont have broken it.

    For some this is kind of a selling point.

    Dumb. For those with old HW, why would anyone with half a mind choose to upgrade a fully functional OS to one that does not update? I am sure there will be a few that do, and presumably security updates will continue, just other updates wont.

    I do feel like we just need a surge in WINE or Proton development, to the point that it's seamless running Windows software on Linux. At that point, we have backwards compatibility and can move forward with everything Linux based.

    Cant wait to see W11 adoption rates a year from now. Should be embarrassing for MS. The tech media will tear them a new one over this. :D

    Or perhaps the even funnier situation.... high adoption rate but people can't update because "unsupported" hardware.

    I have no doubt whatsoever in the future availabilty of 'hacked' copies of win 11 that will either bypass this TPM 2 requirement or 'spoof' it's presence.

    I can already see users trying to find a method to get this feature on supported PCs as well.

    If you can bypass the TPM 2.0 requirement, I am pretty sure it will be possible to get updates manually and bypass the requirements again. On the good side, no need to get huge amounts of W11 updates all the time, unless there are major bugs that make the system unstable or something.

    I wonder if turning TPM off in the BIOS would do the trick?

    I really cant understand the logic of excluding Ryzen 1xxx but including the 2xxx processors, ZEN and ZEN+ are functionally the same

    14nm vs 12nm and some ipc increase on zen+ but yeah basically the same. Funny thing is that 1600af isnt supported and 2600 is.

    I dunno, this whole mess with Windows 11 has forced me into looking at Linux seriously as an alternative.
    Installed Garuda Linux with the gaming distribution and I am really loving it.
    So long as I can continue to run my MMO's on the Garuda Linux, I'm happy with that.
    Only thing I miss is Argus Monitor for fans and temp control, otherwise the gaming itself is grand on Garuda.
