I think i know where they are going with that. microsloth has been working on a “secure” os for some years now, it uses something called a “fritz” chip. the problem they have is they need the MB manufacturers in bed with them for it work.
The way this works is this: all software run on the system will run through this “fritz” chip, its function is two fold. first it checks the system to ensure there has been no changes to the system’s hardware, hot rodding fans like me will be SOL. nice huh? if there is any change to the hardware the bios shuts it down. if that isnt enough, if the system passes the hardware check it now logs into the server of the software you want to run, starting with your os.
they see a future where all the software resides on the manufacturer’s server, you never actually have a copy of it like you do now. all apps will also do this system wide scan, if any software is modified or hardware she shuts down. this is the grand antipiracy scheme. with all those security checks going on think of the nightmare’s comming our way as they “work out the bugs”. i think thats what that “attempted copyright” shit is comming from, they want it illegal to look at the stream so’s we cant see the code. right now its illegal to disassemble software but we can view anything in our network stream. that will soon become considered a type of reverse engineering software as it would be under that type of system.
I think the entire architecture stinks, and i hope they never talk the hardware manufacturer’s to cooperate with it. on the other hand, we have had it pretty damn good for alot of years we had to know that they would someday crash our party, bottom’s up till then i guess. fritz should be shot and pissed on for developing that damn thing, its a crime against all humanity, well the pc using part of us anyways.
