    Fairly curved 2tb Western Digital M.2 2280 in the Asus Rampage 6 Extreme Encore motherboard add-in card.

    Microsoft to Ban Unsupported Machines from Windows 11 Updates

    For Microsoft to say that users with unsupported hardware will be banned from receiving their bug filled, system breaking updates is among the best news I have heard in a long time.
