    What’s notable about this article are these items…

    * After Microsoft made TPM 2.0 a “hard” requirement, HP Enterprise requested MS develop a workaround for its clients with HP hardware that passed all Win11 requirements except TPM 2.0. Microsoft acquiesced and developed the bypass allowing TPM 1.2.
    * Notably, NIST [the National Institute of Standards and Technology] has required many federal agencies [including the Department of Defense] to move to SHA-256.
    * …Microsoft will prepare separate Win11 versions for sale in China, Russia, and other authoritarian regimes. In these countries and many others, TPM chips are against the law.
    * The largest defense department in the world … is telling Microsoft that DoD won’t buy and use Windows unless SHA-256 is baked in, which requires TPM 2.0.
