UK Government Wants a Backdoor into Windows Vista

The BBC is reporting that the British Government is working with Microsoft in order to gain backdoor to the forthcoming Windows Vista file system.

The system uses BitLocker Drive Encryption which can be linked to a chip called TPM (Trusted Platform Module) in the computer’s motherboard.

The system is aimed at preventing tampering with computers but it would also help prevent people from downloading unlicensed films or media.

DRM, government backdoors and I’m sure the usual Microsoft penchant for instability. Why the hell would anybody want to pay money for such a beast?
