I doubt it would work to customer expectations. If it does block programs with modified code, then programmers would hae a bad time with Longhorn. If MS is watching what is going on, I know people will switch to Linux. My main concern is whether it can be turned off. If not, we're screwed. If so, computing barely changed...except for an attempt to violate privacy.

There still figuring. Like when intel wanted to give every puter chip a unique number that couldnt be turned off.Folks back lashed against it and they dropped it or atleast they seemed too.
