How Palladium could kill the GPL
A Reg piece on the Microsoft/Intel/AMD "Palladium" DRM/security system in
development, and how it could kill the GPL
. Basically, to work with DRM content and the "trusted" hardware, binaries and kernels will need to be certified, which makes the whole idea of open source useless. (You can compile your own, but it won't work, as it won't be certified.)
