Cory Doctorow responds to (alleged?) use of Palladium in the Mactel OS
I've been an Apple guy for as long as Cory -- used to say that I bled six colors, until that logo was deprecated -- but I think his concerns are spot on.
People working with early versions of the forthcoming Intel-based MacOS X operating system have discovered that Apple's new kernel makes use of Intel's Trusted Computing hardware. If this "feature" appears in a commercial, shipping version of Apple's OS, they'll lose me as a customer -- I've used Apple computers since 1979 and have a Mac tattooed on my right bicep, but this is a deal-breaker.
