As surely as the sun rises in the East, Microsoft will continue to shoot themselves in the foot. They just can't stop themselves.

I'm just kind of surprised that there are a lot of open source developers that use .NET. Seems like that would be a kind of small group to begin with.

For now.

They are pretty much guaranteed to try it again in 2 years, when people have forgotten about it again.

Remember the uproar about Palladium back in the day?
Welcome to mandatory TPM 2.0.

Why the fark would you want to buy a Windows computer without TPM? Windows security is already enough of a hot mess as it is, so I personally don't trust a Windows machine with my data unless I've got things like SecureBoot and BitLocker enabled.

I'm applying those cumulative updates as soon as I see them because I don't want my ass to get pwned by a zero day. And Windows has a shiatload of zero days.

BitLocker: somewhere to stash your BitCoins
SecureBoot: laces or velcro
TPM: Just after TAM.

TPM is just another link the DRM chain -- It enables the big corporations to slowly take away more and more rights from the computer owner and handing them to Microsoft and its ilk.

Just to remind you of why no good will come from that:

It's 2021. No one gets their jimmies rustled about DRM anymore because they stream most everything.

Well maybe gamers, because game DRM seems to be broken as hell. But music and video streaming is pretty much the norm now, so owning music and video seems a kind of 20th century kind of concept. Like did people really spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars on movies that they only watched once or twice?

Nobody cares that Microsoft wants to lock down Windows like it's an XBox?

For instance, they refuse to allow updates to an advanced Windows Process Viewer.

Wouldn't want the little people to be able to see what's running on their computer.
