Microsoft's new security chip will not lock devices to Windows 11 as feared



New PCs released this year that ship with Microsoft’s Pluton security chip will still be able to run other operating systems besides Windows 11.

While it was initially feared by the open-source community and others that Pluton would serve as a means to lock equipment to the latest version of Windows, that isn’t the case at all. Instead, in addition to being able to install Linux and BSD, PC makers and even users themselves will be able to turn off the feature entirely.
