LXer: Linux: Genuinely Trustworthy Computing


Published at LXer:

Who controls your computer? If it's a Windows computer, not you. I swear I'll puke if I read one more cheery press release touting "Trustworthy Computing."

Windows® sucks! And since you've raised the subject of misleading information, we have a TV advert in the UK which spouts on about how much Microsoft® does for our school children's education and shows loads of happy schoolkids sat at brand new PCs. If it wasn't for the millions of pounds spent by the Education Authorities on Microsoft® licences for our schools, perhaps they could afford tp replace some of the outdated computers that the schoolkids actually have to use! Maybe we should lobby our MPs to take up Open Source software.
