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.

If they implement it right, it can be done pretty much unbreakable. Good luck trying to intercept internal CPU logic that doesn't communicate across the bus; sure, initial transfer of "unlock key" goes across a bus, but from then on everything can be done internally.
