There was a unique processor identifaction number feature in some of the Pentium3's, but due to public outrage it was removed (or at least disabled).

People felt it could be used to track them, kinda of like a super-cookie on speed... and they were afraid that websites etc. would start disallowing access if they couldn't read your unique processor ID.

Does anyone know whether Longhorn requires a processor identification number of some sort for it's trustworthy computing initiative or DMCA?  i tried google, but couldn't find anything to confirm/deny.  Perhaps i've been using the wrong search terms?  i tried a combination of: dmca, longhorn, pin, processor identification number, unique

If so, i guess that would mean the return of the id numbers...
