I normally hate the MS bashing that goes on but the Windows 11 launch has been an omnishambles, and the arbitrary CPU version gate is a complete nonsense with no technical reason behind it.
If you think this fairly successful launch is an omnishambles, you’re either incredibly young (too young to even remember W8 let alone Vista) or incredibly ignorant.
TPM requirements are licensing + security reasons. Even the cutoff for these is still far more generous than plenty of older Windows versions were, and they’re fairly easy to workaround too.
