Stay away from Intel Pentium D and i945 chipset
Yesterday Intel have officially launched the new i945 chipset and new dual-core Pentium D CPUs. But they have a little dirty secret that Intel would like to hide from us. The new chipset and processors come with Digital Restrictions Management (DRM) technology enabled. What this means is that greedy people like RIAA, MPAA and Microsoft now have the ability to control what music we can listen, what movies we can watch and, in the extreme case, what software can we use. I don't know about you, but I most certainly wouldn't buy hardware or software that takes away my right and freedom to use my computer in the way I want to use it. So all I can say is: "Stay as far away as possible from Intel Pentium D processors and Intel i945 chipsets!"
