    How old is your laptop?Most computers built in the last 5 years have tpm 2.0 but disabled in the bios.
    it is a Dell inspiron N5050 originally had windows 7 and now windows 10 home via free upgrade.
    Maybe it is new enough to have PTT. There is a link about how to find out: https://www.dell.com/support/kbdoc/en-us/000181412/intel-platform-trust-technology-ptt PTT came out in 2013. If your laptop is older than that you will have to stick with Windows 10 or get a new laptop.

  2. Found this that may help older PCs bypass any tpm requirements and install win 11. My pc is older than most but supports tpm 1.2 which I keep seeing conflicted reports of will or won’t work

    That's an actual upgrade from Windows.

    For video, WinXP/7 is generally required,
    But I far prefer Mint or Xubuntu for actual non-video 'net/mail/office type tasks.
    Or Mac for photo, better OS integration.

    Because distros like this border on being a scam. There is absolutely nothing special about this distro or Ubuntu Studio, I can take any distro and install the exact same software, and in the case of Ubuntu Studio, RT kernel. In fact, back when I was a regular user of Linux, I put together a script that would could take any Ubuntu variant and auto-install all the software I normally install. The script was easily modified for Fedora or OpenSuse or Arch based variants.

    Don't get me wrong, I like MX Linux, I like Ubuntu and Fedora but let's be honest with ourselves, if you have the money and are serious about video editing you buy a Mac, specifically one of the new ARM based systems, if you have a more modest budget or like a more do-it yourself build, you use Win 10.

    Linux is a toy, an entertaining toy, but a toy nonetheless.

    So I guess workstations are called toys now? https://system76.com/desktops
    I agree any distro can have the same software but not everyone has the knowhow or patients to set things up themselves.
    I merely mentioned that distro as an alternative for people like I just mentioned, but calling Linux a toy when Mac OS uses BSD codebase and the XNU kernel... You made me chuckle.

    Great to be aware that Linux is ... not so great as (sometimes) advertised.

    Apart from that off-topic , this is "Windows 11" thread, so there must be a bunch of people who are interested in using Windows 11 anyway.

    Waiting for more info on new builds and user experience (performance, compatibility, bugs etc). Cheers!

    Oh, Linux is fine for meeting the basic needs of someone using an older PC or people using workstations running custom/proprietary software written for Linux. It's just the lack of hardware and software choices for the vast number of people whose needs are in between those two extremes that make Linux not good enough for many people here to use.

    I'll save you the trouble of writing the standard lame excuse, "but that isn't Linux's fault. It's the fault of all those greedy companies that won't write drivers and software for an OS that only 2% of computers connecting to the Internet run and lazy users who are unwilling to learn to code and write their own programs."

    "Workstation" does not mean Linux, it simply means a computer used to do work and the OS can be anything, BSD, Linux, Windows, OSX, AIX, whatever.

    Also, there's nothing special about the System 76 computers or the Ubuntu based Pop OS they run, they do have nice cases but that's it.

    What makes Linux a toy is the lack of "killer apps", the unique Linux only software that makes Linux a must use.

    Windows has Office, which can't be touched, not by OpenOffice, not LibreOffice, not FreeOffice, nothing.

    OSX has Final Cut Pro X, a must have if you want to fully exploit the new M1 processors and/or want/have to use ProRes Raw.

    The sad truth is that Linux, by virtue of that idiotic GPL, is incapable of ever having that killer app, that must use on Linux application that would force one to install a Linux distro.

    I'm interested in Win 11 and I know how it's going to go, when it's first released I'm going to bitch and say that Win 10 is better and that I have no intention of switching, just like I did when Win 10 was released and I went around telling everyone Win 7 was better. Eventually MS will release an update that allows Win 11 to surpass Win 10 and then I will sing the praises of Win 11.

    But this won't happen for at least a year, so for the time being, I'll stick with Win 10.

    There are a few people here still using Windows XP because of personal preference. There are more people here who are still using XP because they need to use specialized long-discontinued hardware or software that doesn't work using later versions of Windows or in a virtualized XP environment.

    I don't have a computer running XP anymore but I have two older computers in operation running unsupported operating systems (one runs Windows 7 and the other runs Windows 8.1) as well as a newer computer running Windows 10. I am building a new computer that I hope will run Windows 11 someday.

    The new computer that I have yet to assemble might be the only one I have that can run Windows 11 if the TPM 2.0 requirement holds.

    Since there is a TPM header available on the motherboard I installed in my 2-year-old Coffee Lake Windows 10, machine, Supermicro decided that it was unnecessary to offer the option of using the BIOS to activate PTT, and the only TPM modules Supermicro made for that motherboard are TPM 1.2. I am very reluctant to replace a functioning $140 motherboard with a new one just to run Windows 11.

    How did you effect this? this'll be mine and many others downfall in installing Windows 11. My Dell Optiplex 9020 only has TPM version 1.2

    Microsoft is making it harder to switch default browsers in Windows 11.
    Competitors aren’t happy.

    I finished upgrading my HTPC (and updated my computer details). It probably supports Windows 11 because there are indeed settings for PTT in the BIOS to make up for the lack of a TPM header on the board. Since I use the HTPC as my DVR, I am going to wait to try installing Windows 11 due to the approaching fall season TV premieres.

    Microsoft released a new version of their PC Health Check app today and added some more processors to its supported list.

    However, by yesterday I was tired of waiting and I decided to try an alternative, WhyNotWin11, to validate my HTPC's hardware and BIOS settings for Windows 11. All but 3 of the hardware requirements were met, UEFI secure boot, GPT formatting for the boot drive, and TPM 2.0. That information was very helpful.

    The motherboard included UEFI firmware but I didn't know that my boot drive also needed to be GPT formatted to have UEFI secure boot available. Regarding TPM 2.0, I found out that enabling PTT in the BIOS was not enough by itself to meet the TPM 2.0 requirement. There was no TPM header on this motherboard and thus no way to install a TPM module, so it took me a while to figure out that I needed to enable a "Security Device", which the BIOS noted was not present.

    In my experience Windows 8.1 is a pain to use without something like Open Shell installed to restore the classic start menu functionality.
