If thats what he's talking about, I dont think It will happen. It uses a chip on the motherboard of your computer implementing "public-key cryptography". This would create a new standard for the design of computers and what about open source *nix users? will they have to adapt their open source to be able to work on the new standard of motherboards to be produced by intel and AMD? (both intel and amd have already agreed to manufactuer hardware for microsofts new iniative.) http://www.salon.com/tech/feature/2002/07/11/palladium/print.html http://www.theregister.co.uk/content/4/25891.html
Personally i think its bullshit and people wont stand for this crap. Who wants a mchine that controls them? I like to have control of my machine.
