My 3GHz system works fine for me with no DRM inside. Every new Intel/AMD/Apple based system is going to be little more then an xbox that runs only windows (or macOS). And state approved applications. (I think Apple needs to watch the 1984 commercial they made) No more Linux no more warez, mp3s, divx or visiting web sites that are not 'approved' will it happen overnight nope, but it will happen; You will live in fear of the windows update. 99.9% of why I have a computer is for warez, I guess I'll become a terrorist or something fun like that. DRM will end any reason to upgrade a computer, get a computer 10x faster then you have now an do 100x less things with it! If games didn't require 40 patches over 6 months to get them to work as advertised, of it Microsoft could ship an OS without a 'critical' security problem I'd say hey perhaps the computer business is mature and we can start to nail things down but all DRM does is put consumers at even more of a disadvantage when dealing with the corporate powers. If you buy a car that tries to kill you there are laws to protect you, what if someone sold a car that only ran on 'Shell branded Gas' there would be racketeering, price fixing, anti consumer choice, charges before lunch time. If the Taliban or Red China tech starts to sell computers without DRM I'll buy from them, Intel & AMD are dead to me as long as DRM is inside, but what choice do I have now for a new computer? Thank goodness there is no reason to upgrade.
