M/S is digging their heels in on this one. Meet the specs or you're out.
I see where they are coming from with security in mind which it seems that's really what Win 11 is all about.

What I don't get is Windows is an Operating System and it is carrying on like it is the next release of some massive multiplayer game!

The TPM has been around for a while, long enough for older Motherboards to easily meet the requirements of Secure Boot. Why are they so needy about users having the latest Gen CPU.

I have 6th Gen Intel and my motherboard has the TPM2.0 Module in and working this should be good enough to satisfy an OS

Do you think they will drop the CPU requirement if the Motherboard is TPM2.0 Ready and Active.

If not I will just keep an eye out for a Win11 Transformation addon for Win10

After reading that spec, modern computers purchase in 2k21 more or less already meet the requirements. Just do not pick the much cheaper one when buying a computer.
