Intel vows support for Free Software
At Linux Expo in New York City an Intel Spokesman said the company had no plans to make hardware that would only boot Palladium enabled systems. The representative said that Intel plans to continue to sell non-DRM hardware to support the Free Software market. With Linux at at about 25% of the server market it would not be wise to build systems that
do not boot Free Software according to Intel.

Palladium is here - Stop it before it is entrenched!
American Megatrends announced its 'trusted computing'
BIOS on Jan 6. It seems that the encrypted BIOS'
integrity will be verified by a special chip or flash ROM,
and will in turn verify the 'authenticity, integrity and
privacy' of the boot loader and the operating system. Does
that mean such machines may refuse to boot any other
non-'trusted' OS?

New Yorkers For Fair Use is calling
on all computer buyers to boycott any computers with
Palladium technology built in. The way to show
these folks we mean business is to hit them in the
pocketbook by not giving them our money for systems
that we can not trust or control.

Be sure to look at the real information on "Trusted Computing" and send an email to marketing@ami.com telling them you will not buy their product!
