I dont find Windows 11 attractive in any way, why bother when 10 is still supported?

Looks alone are subjective and it might not appeal to everyone. I tend to like it. But the search for apps (press start and type the name) actually working correctly, snaps, and other things I rather like. Currently using it for my work on an old 6th gen i7 as a test case and been working well. Especially now that they fixed the issue with clicking on notifications causing explorer to crash.

Personally i really like it and like to be up to date if its good, if they end up never supporting my cpu i will not bother. Just curious on what people think about the approach Microsoft will take in allowing older cpus

Yes exactly what i think i do need to enable tpm and secure boot, but i do not want to mess with my pc as i have tried and it has boot looped, if they acccept my cpu then il give it a go

I also think its not fair for someone that has no idea on how to enable a tpm or secure boot for someone who just wants to be up to date and is not tech savvy going to find it hard to do. I hope Microsoft explain this better for other people such as in the pc health checker
