[Ilugc] TCPA, DRM & Palladium

Palladium is based on TCPA, and the TCPA spec provides
for TCPA to be switched off. Expect that to happen
wholesale on home computers.
Oops, Palladium != TCPA, but *is similar to* TCPA.
On the other hand, the similarity extends far enough:
alternative OSes will be able to run on a Palladium PC,
largely since the extra, Palladium functionality can be
ignored. Also, most OSes should be able to enable the
Palladium featureset if they so choose.
Seth Schoen has a pretty good page on the subject here,
this is possibly the best coverage I have seen from someone
not under a NDA:
