I just noticed that massive lack of information of the subject of trusted computing in this thread and I must say its rather disturbing to see that so many of you are ignoring such a serious subject.

For those of you who don't know trusted computing will be shipping with windows vista.


The company's want to take away your rights you have no control

The only programs you will be able to run will have to be signed by Microsoft. Effectively eliminating free software on the windows platform, stopping little timmy from learning how to program and giving Microsoft total control over the market.
