Re: USA to legalize root-kits,spyware???

Um, so what if I use Linux and the root kit can't be installed on it?

Or it can be installed, but it will show me an elevated prompt, raising red flags?

So this is only to catch the dumb "crooks" then? Wow, so much effort and so much freedom lost for so little gain.

More than likely they have allowed themselves a clause to actively go after any connection that is logged into a public exclusion zone system allowing them to protect their infrastructure and content. Their systems will of course be protected on more than one level. Hardware destruction is still an option here.
