Win11 support

If it's not ZDoom, it goes here.

Seems like Microsoft will allow users of older computers to upgrade to Windows 11 when it gets released:

Also, it looks like ASUS is already releasing BIOS updates to enable TPM support for capable motherboards as well.

Which was a nice plot twist after a friend linked me that last night. My mobo is actually supported, but the reason why I couldn't find it damn near anywhere is because ASUS put it into Advanced Mode under "PCH-FW" (what's that, even?). The only option there is actually the TPM 2.0 toggle, called "Intel Trusted Platform Module" for me. Switched it on, PC did a hard reboot, and looked into tpm.msc after getting back online. It works.

So the only issue that remains is whether the CPU requirements will indeed stay this way or not. That'd be the only thing locking me out of W11 now I believe.

Turns out people installing Windows 11 on unsupported systems won't get updates. I can already hear people being actually very glad to not have updates forced down their throats.

Which is stupid IMO.

If it isn't capable or supported, then no OS upgrade. It really should be this simple as being allowed to upgrade to it anyway only to be stuck on an initial RTM build is going to be pretty bad.
