From what I read in THIS ARTICLE (same title as my thread name), Microsoft isn't going to relax it's restrictions for installation. They're kind of vague on the CPUs.

I appreciate and respect their adherence to moving forward with device "security" at the forefront, but....

I'm old enough to remember just a couple short years ago when everyone was running around with their hair on fire because of certain hardware / firmware attack vectors that were being exploited

TPM-FAIL https://www.zdnet.com/article/tpm-fail-vulnerabilities-impact-tpm-chips-in-desktops-laptops-servers/
Zombie Load https://www.zdnet.com/article/intel-cpus-impacted-by-new-zombieload-side-channel-attack/
Spectre and Meltdown https://www.zdnet.com/article/secur...el-chip-since-1995-arm-processors-vulnerable/
Spoiler https://www.zdnet.com/article/all-i...r-non-spectre-attack-dont-expect-a-quick-fix/

SO....
I'm not at all, overly convinced that these efforts currently being foisted upon us in the name of device "security" in going to prove the "panacea" that many are inferring from what others are implying.

Don't be lulled into a false sense of security.

Got to agree there, Trouble. I certainly can remember those time of attacks on TPM an secure boot. Maybe the Ms planners are a little too young to know it is easily done:devilish::eek:
