xdev, I have to doubt that you've ever actually used any of the virtualization software. Are you happy with the performance losses? If so, why?

Giving Intel chips better virtualization support is a great thing. It means software like VMware (and others) can run much closer to full speed.

And TPM is excellent technology, as long as it remains in the owner's control. I would be happy to have a TPM enabled motherboard as long as it's running a trusted (by me) operating system.

TPM will combine with virtualization. It'll be great to run untrusted applications inside a virtual machine where they can be closely watched.
