How can I avoid TPM? (hardware DRM has a new name)
zeeman 2 years ago
Intel is pushing TPM, the Trusted Platform Module, in order to make the movie studios happy. Basically, it's hardware-integrated DRM that's going to stop people from being able to back up their movies and games, even though the Supreme Court says we have a right to back up the stuff that we buy. How can I avoid getting TPM in the next computer I buy? Is there something I should look for that will warn me whether or not TPM is built into my system?
