TPM chips invented in ~2004 were widely feared because they enabled this capability, but until now they have been primarily used only in corporate networks and for BitLocker hard drive encryption.

[…] Cloudflare has already shown it is possible for websites to use it to verify the humanity of a user and skip CAPTCHAs on macOS. What happens when Windows gains that ability? Linux users will be left out in the cold […]

On an extremely paranoid note, will our government or a large corporation require a driver’s license for the internet, with a digital attestation binding a device to your digital ID in an unfalsifiable way? […]

Archive.org, bittorrent, fediverse, ipfs, alternate clients, tor. And for the “piracy/adblock is bad how dare you” people: you make it impossible for me to access your content legitimately, I won’t loose sleep over pirating it.

Or, if I’m being honest, mainstream media (at least in the West) is so blatantly designed for profit as opposed to any artistic/educational/informational value, that you’re really not missing much by not having access to it, and indie stuff is a lot less likely to pull any kind of DRM bullshit.

TPM has nothing to do with security. It exists to deny people control over the device the bought.

just disable secure boot

I have secure boot enabled, secure boot should be used more. It’s an amazing improvement in terms of security. But obviusly I use my own keys to be able to boot linux.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
