My main PC is also missing the TPM and my laptop has an unsupported (at least yet) CPU but I'm sure Windows 11 would run just fine on both, since I have no issues with Widows 10, but I'm not upgrading until Windowblinds 11 is out. I do like the look of Windows 11 out of the box like quite a few users though, so the longer it takes for Stardock to make a working version, the more users will maybe no longer care about it when it's finally out.
Jan, one of my Laptops is an early I7 with no TPM Module and it runs Win 11 fine , no issues, so i am sure yours will run it just fine. As we have always known , MS acts others Re Act, i am not the most Green of persons in the world(i do try) and hate the fact MS would allow those who do not re act, to bin or replace machines that are good , fast and powerful.
Did anyone see how much the price of TPM Modules shot up to the day after MS launched Win11, the price was X 10 of what they are worth.
It has always been a worry about the time frame of WB11, i think you are bang on the money Jan, but hope you are wrong, it may take a big Advertisement campaign to bring back some peeps.
