Re: A TPM os good on Chrome, and bad in Windows?

I would say is exactly the other way round - a TPM where I can run the OS of my choice, and the TPM helps to protect it from unwanted modification is good. If it is used to hinder any modification and run only the Google/MS/Apple/etc. approved OS is bad....

And if I spend a lot of money for a machine to be general purpose, why should I get *less* security? There's a big chance it will hold more valuable data than a commodity, cheap, machine....

But it looks that in Google Alternative Universe everything is upside down...
