This article claims the soon-to-be-released Windows 11 is a step forward for Microsoft users but that Microsoft is failing in its attempt to explain system requirements.


Tech writer Henry T. Casey says Windows 11 is ‘definitely cool, shiny and neat’, but Microsoft’s unveiling of their new operating system was flawed. Casey believes that: 

  1. Microsoft needs to explain what a TPM is and how to enable Secure Boot and TPM 2.0 functionality.
  2. Microsoft should have explained that Windows 11 was more for new machines and less about upgrading existing machines.
  3. Learning those first-party systems as recent as the 5th Gen Surface Pro—from 2017—may not support Windows 11 might upset some users.

Despite that, Windows 11 is looking good regarding overall security. Experts believe that a TPM 2.0 chip is a good thing. Further, Microsoft using Windows 11 to ‘nudge people to move forward’ regarding a TPM 2.0 chip is a positive step and should enhance overall security. Some industry insiders claim that Microsoft’s security standards reduce malware by 60%. However, worth noting that  Windows 10 support will continue until October 2025.
