Apple OfB is reporting that, contrary to widely-published and discussed rumors, Apple is not including the controversial Trusted Platform Module (TPM) chip in its Intel-based Macs. An anonymous registered Apple developer claims that the Apple x86 test boxes do not have DRM or TCPA components. Developers are forbidden from discussing the units by the nondisclosure agreements they've signed with Apple. so they've been unable to counter the rumors.

I should be more careful about what I say.

Kawai, I am not accusing you of being a Mac zealot. Don't see my "venting" as an attack. You don't need to defend your choice.

Heck, if you can do your computing more effectively on the Mac and you can live with its conditions, I am the last person in the world to tell you that you shouldn't use it.

Sorry, I wasn't trying to attack you, if that is the way I came across. If any offence is taken, sorry - I need to fix up my sentence forming :-D

For me, a computer is a tool, if it does what I want, thats all I am worried about - hence the reason I find the whole religious arguments relating to operating systems so amusing.
