If you had a TPM chip and Secure Boot enabled, Windows 10 could use them to provide a supposedly more secure boot experience - the BIOS confirms its security with the TPM chip, etc., creating a secure chain up to the O/S. What has changed in Windows 11 is that this is now mandatory.

I can think of all kinds of reasons for this [insert your favourite conspiracy theory here], but the most worrisome is that it may make help anonymity on the Internet a thing of the past. This will be a boon to Law Enforcement, Banking, etc. - and also to any repressive regimes out there.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.

Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
