lol, jeez.. welcome to 2002 guys!
And no, Microsoft is not going to be remote controlling your computer or anyone elses. Some of you will just believe anything, huh? This system will
actually protect your priacy a little better.
Benefits of Palladium include:
"Lets your computer know you're you" and, conversely, lets you know whom you are dealing with on other computers
"Stops viruses and worms" by not running unauthorized programs
Stops spam before it gets to your inbox
"Safeguards privacy" (using something called "My Man" to control who gets your private data)
Digital Rights Management: you can control who can read, forward, and save your e-mails,etc., and conversely, the RIAA/MPAA/etc. can control content
that it sends/sells to you
The only really bad thing here is that it could help destroy open source software.
