    Yes it can! With firmware, drivers, MEI FW etc being served through Win update the chances of damaging PC esp. old devices with mismatched HWID can destroy the PC forcing to buy new PC made for Win 11+.
    WU still downloads/shows invalid BIOS for my BGA.

    Yes, you are absolutely correct. It certainly can. It has damaged 2 NVMe and outright killed 1 NVMe SSD on my systems. That happened on two systems (2 NVMe on one system and 1 NVMe on another system) when Windows Update moved the crash test dummy OS from 1903 to 20H2. It also happened to @Prema on one of his systems. I was able to repair the two Samsung NVMe SSDs using Linux to reset the hidden partition with the controller firmware. The one that was permanently killed with the 20H2 "upgrade" was an Eluktronics-branded Intel NVMe. The fix using Linux did not work on it.

    So, the most correct statement isn't that any OS can damage your hardware, Windows can actually damage your PC. I've locked up many a computer messing around with Arch, which never resulted in not being able to use the PC again, and was entirely my own doing.

    2025...I wonder if M$ is going to really deprecate Win10 or continue to support its last, best OS? To be clear, best as in, the best M$ has been able to muster in its closed source, bug-laden echo chamber, not the best OS.

    See my older post below. Expect a couple of years extended support above the expiry date.

    speaking of Defender Control - version 2.0 recently came out which is fully Win11 compatible unlike the previous 1.x versions which acted like crap on W11
