Heard some rumors saying that Athlon and Intel are going to
form some kind of sick contract with Microsoft.

Saying that (somehow) *don't ask me HOW*, the hardware
of your computer (the processor) will digitallty [borg] mark every
file that you have executed on your machine with some kind of sick ID-number.
This ID will then be used to recognize your file on your system...
Meaning... that on startup.. your processor will search you system for non-local files and remove then on startup.
And so you won't be able to leech files and programms.
SICK!

If(!this){
Hurray!

}else{
F*CK!

}

ahh yes I believe what your reffering to is the Trusted Computed Platform Alliance (TCPA) or more specifically Microsoft's Palladium. You can find tons of articles about it on google.

For a simple break down on the subject I found that this was a good article:

or read what they say at slashdot:

it is microsofts way of wiping out the competition. if palladium were to happen it cold mean machine could only run microsoft licensed software, effectively wiping out open source and linux because no one will pay the license fee for each version released. it would leave microsoft with a monopoly on the computer market.


"Mrs. Jones, I'm sorry to inform you, but we've run the tests, and it appears that you have XP. Now don't cry - it's bad, but it's not a death sentence. Modern science has advanced in recent years, and it's now possible to live a reasonably happy life with XP. And there's a survivor's group that you'll want to meet as well."
