24H2 will have bitlocker turned on by default even in the home ver
This is both good bad, good in that it will make people's PC more secure by default, bad in that if someone loses or forgets their key they're up the creek if they ever need to recover their data. 

Microsoft To Force BitLocker Encryption on Windows 11

Had one this week.  Win11 update went wonky, never fully booting.  Could not do anything useful in recovery console until I got into her MS account for the bitlocker key.  Fortunately I had left the ms account info on the sales order from when I originally set the laptop up last year some time.  I was able to do a non-destructive Windows reset.

A lot of people are going to be just SOL when something like that happens.

At thy right hand pleasures for evermore.

Just noticed a W11 install from a year ago is now giving me a "MS Account Problem" warning and is telling me to sign in to my account, I'm not, when I boot it since the last update
