It was no secret that Windows 11 was going to have a special effect on enterprise hardware. But now we have a better idea of ​​the kind of real-world fallout from Microsoft’s new operating system, courtesy of networking solutions company Riverbed.

Riverbed’s report says more than a third of enterprise devices aren’t ready for Windows 11 (via ZDNet. It says 23% can be upgraded to meet OS requirements, but 12 % are stale and unrecoverable If you’ve been following Windows 11 system requirements and the debacles surrounding them, this next part won’t surprise you: the main cause of these numbers is the OS’s TPM 2.0 break.
