Intel On a Windows Vista or Vindows 7 disk, all versions of the operating system are present, from Starter to Ultimate, and everything in between. So, if you want too upgrade to a more capable version of Windows down the road, all you need to do is pop the Windows disk in, let Windows Anytime Upgrade do its thing, and you're done. It seems like Intel is experimenting with a similar technology... For its processors.

This will get ripped apart by crackers. Let's be honest if Intel can afford to ship the product (with all these dormant features) in the first place then people will be wondering why they should pay more for what they have already got. Most will take the free option, and good luck to them.

It just devalues their product, surely Intel can see that!
