All hardware is OS agnostic. Nobody said you must not port your $whateverOS to $whatever device.

Now, but we have this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trusted_Computing

Depending on TC's level of implementation, does it not negate any OS running on hardware designed for TC? Maybe I am misunderstanding the concept. My fear was that microsoft, google, apple, etc, push to eliminate hardware that runs anything other than their own platforms, unless this fear is unwarranted.

As far as I understand, "Trusted Computing" only secures DRM licensing...?
Which OS does not boot with it and why?

Location: Earth? I would say I hope so but I'm not so sure about that... I could just be a figment of your imagination too.
Distribution: CentOS at the time of this writing, but some others over the years too...

Microsoft has tried that, and before Intel-based Mac's, Apple's OS only ran on their hardware and their hardware wouldn't run any other systems of any kind if I'm not mistaken.

None now, it's not implemented to that level. I read the whole wiki article and apparently there is TC built into the Linux kernel so the fear may be unwarranted. I don't own a computer with "secure boot" or "uefi" so I can't speak to how those technologies interact with Linux, if they cause issues or what the intent of those technologies are.

I don't want to spread FUD, just curious if this technology (TC) has gained any ground.
