Intel "Today's launch of the latest version of Intel's vPro platform is a much bigger deal than you might think, with implications for end users that extend far beyond the enterprise arena at which vPro is initially aimed. The 2007 version of vPro represents the culmination of two of Intel's most ambitious and important plans for the PC platform: the transformation of x86 into a fully virtualizable ISA complete with virtualized I/O, and the first fully-complete implementation of all the parts of Intel's controversial contribution to 'trusted computing' technology, formerly codenamed 'LaGrande' but now called Trusted Execution Technology. Let's take a look at the new vPro and what its new virtualization and 'trusted computing' capabilities mean for ordinary users."

"...as a potential technological enabler of more effective DRM, it's also the ideal companion to Blu-ray and HD DVD, and a godsend to Big Content. Look for it across the rest of Intel's desktop and portable line by the end of 2008 and prepare to kiss fair use goodbye.

I can see AMD using this as a positive point of differentiation between them and Intel. "AMD and Linux leave YOU in control of your desktop."
