Tanenbaum responds to Intel about Minix-based ME

Intel ME running Minix is in the news again…

An Open Letter to Intel

[…]I knew that Intel had some potential interest in MINIX 3 several years ago when one of your engineering teams contacted me about some secret internal project and asked a large number of technical questions about MINIX 3, which I was happy to answer. I got another clue when your engineers began asking me to make a number of changes to MINIX 3, for example, making the memory footprint smaller and adding #ifdefs around pieces of code so they could be statically disabled by setting flags in the main configuration file.[…]

Yours truly,
Andrew S. Tanenbaum
