Found an interesting article about TCPA/Paladium.  It gets very patriotic:
"If Saddam is stupid enough to upgrade his PCs to use TCPA, then the 
American government will be able to hot-list his Windows licences, and 
thus shut down his PCs, next time there's a war. Booting in untrusted mode 
won't help. He'd have to dig out old copies of Windows 2000, change to 
GNU/linux, or find a way to isolate the Fritz chips from his motherboards 
without breaking them. "
