the DRM workshop.

Palladium consumer oppression scheme: Trust Microsoft?
Here is the round up on Microsoft's latest world domination plan.
ZDNet: MS: Why we can't trust your 'trustworthy' OS
The Register: MS to eradicate GPL
Washington Post: Microsoft Wants Security Hard-Wired in Your

Microsoft's notions of "security" and "trust" are obviously
one-sided, and such a system would certainly be used to squash
fair use and first sale rights. Moreover, mono-culture is bad

Free software can protect you from such outrages, because the
source code is anchored to the commons for all to see. Use free
software instead of Microsoft products.

user. In addition, the ppc version installs a GNU-Darwin version OpenSSL
libcrypto.dylib in /usr/local/lib. Sources are in CVS,
