Oi! Leave me out of this...

Only in niche circumstances, for performance from what I have seen most people will probably actually have to disable these new features. It sounds very impressive but having things in perpetual sleep cause WAY too many problems in many use cases.
This is a software problem not a hardware one
other than potentially the context menu tweak.... I see literally nothing in win11 that makes me want it.
Yes, hardware dependent security is not only more expensive than it should be it is also obsolete almost as soon as it becomes widely adopted. There is nothing hardware can do security wise that software cannot do better,
That is less than 4 years.... an eternity in internet time but the blink of an eye in hardware time.
But of course you argue from the privileged position of the higher income earner that pays 45% marginal tax.... you are divorced from the reality on the ground that most people actually face where fully upgrading a whole PC is something you need to save for for half a decade.... IF you can actually afford it.
If a whole office of 5-20 PC's is still running hardware not capable of supporting the bloated new shiny essentially mandatory OS..... and the business basically only makes say a R40k profit per year after expenses..... who is going to pay to have all that hardware replaced? You?
Perhaps you should start thinkng beyond your own cushy privileged position.
A chunk of it is software stuff without a doubt, but that would rely on newer features in the new processor generations potentially so its interconnected.
Maybe you don't see anything in windows 11 that makes you want it, that doesn't mean the features are only really cared about by a small number of people.
Ummm no, hardware dependent security will never be obsolete. A decent security model relies on both hardware and software security. One can't exist and be "safer" without the other.
As for your comment about privileged position of higher income nonsense, I actually haven't bought any PC parts in over 6 years as its too expensive for my blood. And the office thing, if that office only makes R40k per year after expenses, they're never going to upgrade so now the rest of the world must live with an old OS with shyte security because of small marginal businesses? Yeah, thats a great model to adapt for something like an OS.
