I hope MS changes there mind about older hardware and TPM. Otherwise it could be a long time for me.

For me, and I suspect for others, the bigger issue of the two isn't TPM, but the CPU generation. We have two laptops with TPM but using 6th gen CPUs that don't technically qualify.

It's not a real problem, as we have other, supported PCs that are happily running 11, but I'd prefer all our PCs be on 11 for user convenience.

I do think that this requirement will be relaxed, perhaps with the next annual update, as one of the 6th gen laptops is running 11 as a Dev Channel machine. It's slow, but no slower than it was with Windows 10.

Exactly, who wants to deal with different interfaces. I like the consistency of 11 yet I'm not aware of any reason not to support older CPUs except greed.

11 adds substantial code for security. This code is CPU hungry. Lesser or older ones may render 11 slower than 10.

Not a welcome outcome for an upgrade.
