[Arm-netbook] Pluton: M$ firmware and TPM to be built into your processor...

M$‘s move certainly seems monopolistic in nature.  I’m a little surprised they were able to twist so many arms (AMD and Intel?) so hard!  And I’m surprised that anyone in the SoC market would seriously dedicate their processor to running a M$ OS.

Thanks for the link to the Open Titan site.  It looks like a step in the right direction.  I wonder if libre-soc could liberate the 4 remaining blocks still marked “proprietary” (Foundry IP, Analog IP, Physical Design Kit, Chip Fabrication) and create a “libre-titan”?  I guess an underlying question is, “Do we have a need to lock everything down that tight in a libre-soc system, since we are designing it from the ground up to avoid many of the exploits inherent in the AMD and Intel architectures?”
