Posted by a Linux user. Figures. A typical Linux machine is full to bursting with stolen movies, music and software. Since the Linux community will never support TPM, sources of stolen content will wither away, and, perhaps, Linux itself will die.

And a typical USENET bluster is full of unfounded assumptions and illogical arguments.

What does this have to do with Trusted Computing and the Mac?
