I hope that people doing this will remember that spectre/meltdown are not the only bad things intel has been involved in. The whole management engine business is potentially quite a lot more damaging than the two vulnerabilities could be, atleast the vulnerabilities only let memory be READ, the management engine can be used to WRITE AND READ memory and change more or less anything else on a computer. The scandal here needs to be used to punish intel, and other chip makers, for including non-deactivatable management engines in their products, something to warn them off pursuing secureboot any further would also be desirable.
