Boing Boing: Apple to add Trusted Computing to the new kernel?

People working with early versions of the forthcoming Intel-based MacOS X operating system have discovered that Apple's new kernel makes use of Intel's Trusted Computing hardware. If this "feature" appears in a commercial, shipping version of Apple's OS, they'll lose me as a customer -- I've used Apple computers since 1979 and have a Mac tattooed on my right bicep, but this is a deal-breaker.

As I told rochelle on IM: "as long as someone has a work around that bypasses this I'll be ok. but if it isn't bypassed you can be sure that more people who write software will move to linux, which ay improve linux. And I'll move back to it." Mac was my OS of choice after SunOS, DOS, NeXt and the like. I don't mind changing.
