Intel's SGX tiptoes towards Linux



This sounds like a technology that can only bring bad things. I'm not sure if I WANT Linux support for it.

Anti-features, DRM, inscrutable code.

Good news for virus writers and "revenue protection managers", bad news for everyone else.

Oh and of course one thing that's most certainly already using it: UEFI. Truly the Spawn of Satan. The NSA, Mossad, etc don't want anyone looking inside their blackest of black-boxes.
