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."

And of course there is the Loongson processor, which already performs admirably at 660 MHz. This is the official Chinese processor developed by ICT (Institute for Computing Technology) of CAS (Chinese Academy of Science).

Yeah, the Chinese are so much more trustworthy than Intel. Give me a break.
The only way to do anything about anything in a market economy is a publicity (the Internet is great for that) and boycotting products.
When company sees its sales drop, the bean counters take notice and changes happen.
Besides, I'd bet that the TC chip will be controlled by the bios, with enable and disable, just like it was with the P3 id number (or whatever it was called).
