Is it true that the processors newer than Core2 have a "management engine" back door with which intel can command our computers remotely?

No, that's not true. Stop listening to the conspiracy theorists.

Wikipedia is not a realiable source of information, however it's something useful. Take a look at this: https://stallman.org/intel.html

Stallman has a good professional degree and a very good reputation.

I wanted to hear customer's opinions. Maybe with a test using reverse engineering could determine if really that's true or not. The firmware is propietary.

Don't waste your time answering guys, anyone willing to listen to a whack job like Stallman isn't going to believe anything we have to say anyway.

You say that maybe because you have a blind faith in Intel and propietary software.
