Find an overview of Windows 11 specs and features from Microsoft. Learn about Windows 11 computer requirements and more helpful information.
* Trusted Platform Module (TPM) version 2.0
* Windows 11 Home edition requires internet connectivity and a Microsoft account to complete device setup on first use. (What kind of Bs is this? The EU should have a blast with this one)
* Cortana will no longer be included in the first boot experience or pinned to the Taskbar (saw that one coming, didn't we?)
So there are some vague references in the rest of the introduction. Just as I predicted, MS isn't going to give anything away. An account required for home edition? WTF is that? So your system becomes perpetually linked to Microsoft and that account. That's scary to say the least. I don't think that will last, however MS has a massive legal department to tie that up for a long, long time.
**** And to top it off MS won't even let me load Win 11 b/c I have my TPM disabled and no MS account. Instead of telling me how to fix those 2 simple things, they want me to go out and buy a new system, This one is 1 year old! Of course they are pushing The Surface like anyone will buy one at those prices. This should be fun.
