Take some notes
A word of warning to Linux users - while the drive works fine out of the box, if you want to do a firmware update (my firmware was out of date), WD provide no official way to update the firmware on Linux, which is very poor in this day and age. No fwupd/LVFS support, no ISO image and no raw binary firmware image either, although WD is supposedly "uploading firmware [to fwupd/LVFS] on behalf of other vendors", but apparently not for its own branded drives the public can buy - duh!
The PC builder left an unactivated Windows 11 on my new PC, so I went through through the horrible setup process, downloaded the Windows-only WD utility, patched the firmware and then wiped Windows 11 (which manages something I thought was impossible - being worse than Windows 10). I'll still have a problem for future updates, so I think I'll contact WD and suggest they add their consumer drives to fwupd/LVFS. All hardware vendors should do this and then we'd have one single firmware updater for multiple hardware and OSs (yes, Windows is supported - MS should really ship fwupd with Windows to get some inertia on this - a lot of OEMs are still ignoring it).
