Subject: Why we need TPM in Linux kernel?
Date: Wed, 23 Nov 2005 02:04:58 +0300
Hi,

I'm worried with the so-called "Treacherous Computing" appearance in
recent Linux kernels. I have read about it on EFF & GNU portals and
can't see any benefits for Free Society by supporting this technology.
Also it looks like this TPM drivers were written by IBM employees. I
suspect IBM pushed this into kernel. I understand what this drivers come
in source form under GPL, anybody can just don't compile them in, but
again what benefits this drivers can bring for casual Linux user?

Regards.

Serge
