Required, a Microsoft account on Home and Pro
Security, TPM 2.0 and Secure Boot.
Integration of the “Microsoft Pluto” security chip
Completely new substructure, nothing from other OS.
Taking Windows 10X Approaches

I think the 1st comment says it all - Why ? I thought Win10 was supposed to be the "last windows you will ever use", and then Win11 popped up with next to zero improvements, and now Win12 with even more near-useless security features people will have to bypass to use ? Truly wondering what M$ is thinking at this point...

"last windows you will ever use”
Exactly what popped into my head seeing this post.
Personally I don’t have a Win10 install that’s logged in to a MS account. They are providing all this “enhanced security”, while data mining everything they can get from their users.

My only real concerns are -

Will the MS account requirement be just as easy to bypass as W11.

And

If these pluton chips are being built into CPUs with MS firmware (first I heard about them and that's just from 2 minutes of skimming), it seems like an easy way to pull something screw-y and lock out other OSes. Just my inner conspiracy theorist.

It's Pluto :) Although it may as well be plutonium :rofl:
