Re: A TPM os good on Chrome, and bad in Windows?

On a general purpose machine in a class where you can traditionally run whatever OS you like, a TPM is bad.

On a machine sold as custom built for one specific OS, it's good.

There are other factors too. If you're spending a lot of money on a machine you hope to be general purpose, a TPM is bad. If you're spending little money on a machine you will treat as a commodity, it's a lot more acceptable.

It's all very situational.
