So I.T. has come to this…

While getting in some reading on the recent announcements concerning Microsoft’s press over Longhorn, I stumbled across an article on Trusted Computing (TC) by Ross Anderson, a founder and active member of the Foundation for Information Policy Research and Cambridge University Computer Laboratory professor.

The article, titled ‘Trusted Computing’ Frequently Asked Questions, is an awesome, sometimes irreverant, but ultimately even-handed (though not particularly favorable… in fact alarming!), look at the Microsoft/IBM/and others consortium and their march towards TC.

I strongly urge you to read this, or some of the other enlightening articles (here, here and here)
