The question that has been rattling around in my head for a bit was why would Intel not simply build a better mouse trap rather than burden their users with DRM?More info at The Inquirer
The answer surprised me when I heard it. It seems the negotiations between Intel and Microsoft to get MS on board initially had Intel taking a fairly strong anti-DRM stance. Every time Intel said no, Microsoft pulled out a proverbial Athlon 64, laid it on the table, and said something like 'they are on board'. Powerful argument that.
