Why is Microsoft pushing TPN for windows 11?


Why is Microsoft pushing TPN for windows 11?

If I understand TPN is not designed to stop malware like viruses, spyware, adware and ransomware and such.

That TPN is designed for tampering of computer hardware and theft. But how likely is some one going to walk into server room or some large business and do that.

Why is Microsoft pushing TPN for windows 11 for home users? Is it to stop people installing Linux?

Here's Microsoft's explanation: https://www.microsoft.com/security/b...-to-the-cloud/

You may also find this new LQ thread relevant: https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...ck-4175697197/

The majority of the WWW runs on Linux, but the majority of businesses run on Windows. I suspect that that is the market segment MS is most concerned about, not home users.
