Re: Is it just me...
I echo your sigh.
The licence for the (Linux) tool is also not exactly helpful - I quote the "SINGLE USER LICENSE"
note item 3:
"3. You may not reverse engineer, decompile, or disassemble the Software."
I have not downloaded it, but I assume this means it is not open source. So Intel wish me to trust some closed source software that I should run on my PC? Without checking, I don't know it it requests root privileges, but it doesn't exactly inspire me with confidence.
