For instance, I highly doubt that Microsoft will refuse to let you install Windows 11 unless you have a specific web cam or something like that, it'd be a terrible business move on Microsoft's part, plus how would they even know that Windows is being installed on a machine of a certain size?
That and the source that people are getting this from even reads like a guide for OEMs

Looks like YouTube has decided to mess with another creator because they dared talk about a YouTube alternative, this is absurd, as I've been saying over the past few days we need to get off YouTube
