The Lounge What is on Your Mind? Linux Desktop vs Windows 8
# 15  
One nice thing is that the major OEM's like Dell are still selling systems with *nix systems installed from the factory. This should meet the requirements of hardware that will be friendlier to our preferred OS.

Here's HP product support matrix. It shows SLED and RHEL supported systems in their current product line. I found one of these systems on Newegg's business refurbished site for $339, the z200.

This IS trusted computing. Trusted computing was delayed a bit when public outcry resulted in proposed laws mandating it failing to take hold.
But the TPM (trusted platform module) remained and was being sold to companies who want to do their own internal trusted schemes.

Windows 8 adds TPM as optional (at OEM discretion) for x86 and mandatory for ARM (windowsRT).

What I want to know is what happened to all the anti-trusted computing websites and literature. I can't find any of them save for a really silly video that dumbs it down to the extreme. (there were better videos out there)
