    Are they serious, this is to be taken literally? Well that is a big deal. Most peoples desktops do not have a hardware installation of TPM or even have an option to install an add-on card. I have it on my current system, which isn't that old, but I had to buy a card to support it. This is more of their ill thought out strong arm tactics that screw their customers.

    Well you have to read the exception - this does not apply to OEM systems. However, it means that for people like me, who build their own systems, that you have to have a motherboard that supports TPM or a TPM add-on discrete module (mine was the latter) or your SOL. Another attempt to make it inconvenient to build your own.

    How do I get TPM 2.0? I don't know what it is or how I get it.

    Here's some more information about TPM 2.0 and Windows 10.

    According to the article, you need to either have TPM 2,0 supported by your motherboard or get an add-on module if that is supported by your motherboard. This only applies if you have built your own computer. If you bought a computer, for example an HP or DELL, you do not need to worry.

    If you built your own, consult your motherboard manual to see how and if TPM is supported.

    Here is what a TPM header looks like:

    I'm expecting a big rise in Ransomware attacks.

    Agreed.

    Yet another attempt by MS to claim that they actually own your PC(s).
    It will (probably) make it harder to install a different OS.

    From my reading of it. This applies to manufacturers who are selling components. To be Win 10 compliant a new motherboard must have a TPM 2.0 module.

    There is nothing different for the end user who wishes to build their own computer and install Win 10 on older gear. If you want to install another operating system on one of the new motherboards and that operating system does not use the TPM, you can disable it in the BIOS.

    - good to see them setting the standard firmly and squarely at the mobo
    - it's a kind of firmware "line in the sand"

    Completely agree. Way too much hand wringing going on with no basis.
