But. On desktops. NOT on mobile devices, tables, phones, whatever. MS wants these dongled with Windows 8.
So tell me again who is to STFU...
Moreover I personally don't want that strange functionality in my hardware. Maybe it is a "sleeper". I also don't want tcpa/tpm there. Any padlock engine is far better anyway in terms of crypto functions if I need them.
Stop TCPA, stupid software patents and corrupt politicians!
