    Microsoft is going the way of “controlled computing” by requiring things like TPM and Secure Boot. Once the hardware and OS (Win 11) are used by enough people they can start blocking access to certain features and even online content for any device which doesn’t have Microsoft approved hardware and OS. They tried this way back twenty years ago and the community pushed back enough that they dropped the idea, but now it’s back and stronger than ever.

      @knfrmity But Linux is also adding support for these. And this is the security norm these days. Even on Android you have verified boot and support for hardware encryption devices in Pixel models. In both examples you can alter and install your preferred third party OS.
