Could you expand this a little? Anyway, it would be harder to exploit hardware holes in the "average user" config - it is like a protective mask against COVID-19, where our immune system has the hole. The mask is not a panacea, but can lower the risk. Also, people will not stop using Windows, even when we know about hardware vulnerabilities.... So why didn't you say the basics and first in MS - If the hardware has security holes everything else in terms of protection...
If you wanted to suggest that something like Chromebooks would be a good alternative solution for many average users, then I fully agree with you.
I use Windows and virtual machines.Do you use macOS and virtual machines ?
