With release of Windows 11, Microsoft introduced strict hardware requirements that made outdated a ton of modern hardware in a moment. The OS required a newest CPU and a Secure Boot feature with TPM 2.0. For that, Microsoft was heavily criticized by users. As a new research shows, Windows 11 wasn't the first OS with such requirements. Actually, it was Windows 10 where Secure Boot and TPM were mandatory.
