Trusted Launch: Pros vs Cons

Is anyone currently using Trusted Launch for their AVD Hosts?
It seems like something we would always want turned-on, but where we haven't used it before, we want to make sure we're testing it appropriately (i.e. not trying to make a spoon work like a shovel).

Have you used only the vanilla Azure Gallery images or are you successfully using custom images?
Are there any issues or gotchyas (i.e. Mac client users get an error message) we need to be concerned about?
Any end-user experience items we need to let our clients know about?

I would like to know as well, I'm in the same position as you, it would be nice to know if its worth it and what the drawbacks are, if any.

Benefits: increased security and if required meets compliances requirements (when coming from on-premises)

Drawbacks: small performance impact on boot, gen2 requirements

In AVD we should use trusted launch (TL): mission-critical apps and/or highly confidential data, and/or healthcare, financial verticals

Microsoft has just made this a default. We will be following suit.

That's excellent news, Tony Cai!
Will Nerdio have a way to "convert" our desktop images to Trusted Launch images or will we need to recreate them from scratch?
