    Why Microsoft Is So Hell-Bent On Windows 11 TPM And Cloud Security Requirements hothardware.com

    David Weston, Microsoft director of OS and enterprise security, spoke with CRN about the company's controversial decisions with Windows 11. The primary motivation, according to Weston, was to improve security across the board for consumers and businesses, and that meant making some hard decisions regarding hardware requirements.

    For example, Weston said that only 8th generation Intel processors and newer support all the functionality of VBS and TPM 2.0 while hitting its internal performance requirements. That's why only a select few 7th generation Core processors are supported by Windows 11, while the vast majority are blocked.

    "Ultimately, we could have chosen many lines," he added. "But we used data analysis around reliability, performance, and security to get there, and that is how we landed on that particular bar."

    While stringent hardware requirements will prevent many PCs from installing Windows 11, the verdict from solution providers is that the security advantages of TPM 2.0 and newer processors are worth it. The third of a three-part series on Windows 11.

    Yep, I'm sure Microsoft Chief Product Officer Panos Panya have been made sure that the telemetry works as expected:D

    A rolling release to Windows 11 askwoody.com

    Microsoft confirms Windows 11 issues with VirtualBox, Intel Killer bleepingcomputer.com

    Right after officially releasing Windows 11, Microsoft has added three know issues to the Windows 11 12H2 release health dashboard.
    Yep, perfect timing... On win 11 release day:)

    New UEFI bootkit used to backdoor Windows devices since 2012
    http://forum.notebookreview.com/thr...ts-and-incidents.816109/page-47#post-11121827

    Secure Boot doesn't really help
    Patching the Windows Boot Manager (bootmgfw.efi) requires for Secure Boot (which helps check if the PC boots using trusted firmware) to be disabled.

    As the researchers discovered, attackers have deployed the bootkit in the wild, which means they've found a method to toggle off Secure Boot on targeted devices.

    Windows 11 review: The start of a new era windowscentral.com

    Windows 11: The bottom line
    I'm sure Microsoft will add back some of the missing features and behaviors in future releases, but I don't think it'll add back everything. I have a feeling that the vision for Windows 11 going forward is simplicity and ease of use, catering more to the average user who is more familiar with how things are done on their phone, and less to the die-hard Windows power users who want everything to be accessible in a single-click.

    A new smarthphone OS is just born. The start of a new era, LOOL

    Only time will tell when Microsoft will try jump on the smartphone race again. They have just laid the ground foundation for this with Win 11.

    Yes, amen to that. We will never see a 100% secure OS from them or anyone else. Any device connected to the internet is vulnerable to exploit. Plus, the immensely more important underlying matter is that it is none of their damned business what CPU is installed, or whether or not Secure Boot and TPM are available or enabled. They need to butt out and buzz off with the hardware requirements nonsense. It is fine to recommend those things, but requiring those things is outrageous and it makes their ugly-looking digital abortion harder to accept, or outright unacceptable. It may not occur to them that some people don't want Secure Boot and TPM, so they should not have a surprised look on their faces when people reject the idea of installing their trash OS. Anyone that goes out and buys a new laptop only "so they can have Windows 11" deserves whatever kind of broken pile of garbage they get just for being ignorant.

    This didn't take long:

    https://www.notebookcheck.net/Windo...-memory-leaks-remain-unresolved.568613.0.html

    Details:

    File Explorer memory leak
    The other major bug that was noticed by Insiders (via u/gyrohan269 on Reddit) is a File Explorer memory leak. Essentially, any well-written process should free up the allocated memory space once it has been terminated. Looks like that's not the case with File Explorer in the public release of Windows 11 (Build 22000.194).

    The issue appears to affect all Windows 11 installs; we could replicate this issue ourselves as well. Just open multiple windows of File Explorer and notice the RAM usage in Task Manager. Now, close each window to see if the RAM usage declines accordingly. In all likelihood, it doesn't.

    If you work with File Explorer a lot with too many Explorer windows open, you may eventually end up with a sluggish PC. This problem may not necessarily impede those with fast RAM kits and the likes, but it does pose an issue for systems with lesser (and slower) memory.

    Nevertheless, this is a problem that should not exist in the first place. Third-party apps such as Files v2 and Shrestha Files Pro do not suffer from this bug, so it's high time Microsoft fixes this on a priority. If you notice this issue as well, be sure to log it in the Feedback Hub for an increased probability of redressal.

    A launch day memory leak? Really? M$ had a real opportunity with W11 to change the game in a meaningful way. I held a sliver of hope that the development of WSL meant a kernel change might be coming. With leadership at M$ starting to warm to the idea of open source as a viable and necessary element of the development ecosystem, W11 could have positioned itself as the ultimate OS; a platform where private/public partnership met and a possible start towards the last operating system anyone might need. Customizable, transparent, tiered support and delivery, and most of all, debugging in the open. Instead, we get a tablet OS shoehorned in a bug-ridden, overburdened W10 clone. What a mess.

    We already have ample evidence (since it was introduced in 2015) that they do not care about their product or the people that use it. Same behavior we have come to expect from companies that sell turdbooks, including crApple.

    As long as people are willing to accept garbage and deal with correcting the problems on their own, or living with those problems, there will be an endless supply of garbage. Garbage hardware, garbage OSes, and garbage software available for download from their "store" cesspools.
    Aesthetics? Really? Where? Maybe they really mean the absence of pleasing aesthetic qualities and they are trying extra-hard to find something nice to say.

    It amazes me that they showcase the disgusting UI as if it is something special. It's ugly enough to gag a maggot. W8.X and W.10 were arguably equally atrocoious, but they clearly are not learning from past mistakes and they seem to have a knack for employing designers with no talent in the area of design. They have all the bases covered... it's ugly, and it's inefficient, and it impairs performance. By my count that is three strikes.

    Yep, the major problem is the users/people that is willing to accept garbage.... http://forum.notebookreview.com/thr...nfo-for-their-ads.831352/page-7#post-11121867
    See my comment above.

    I tried running the OS in a virtual machine again but this time with the released ISO and, well, they didn't actually tighten up the TPM requirement. So, I downloaded Pro, chosen Pro for installation and did that TPM bypass trick thing with Regedit. It did install, but discovered that in setup that was slower than molasses I still had to login with my Microsoft account and had no option for local user... What gives?

    I went with Pro, expecting to see Local account creation but the setup UI looks so awful and burned my eyes. I ended up deleting the VM entirely, and was surprised to see it still actually work in a VM, without TPM...
