Hello. I am a desktop Linux user, and my motherboard supports Intel TXT(LT) technology. I have read about this technology and have understood, that it enhances security, when I have running virtual machines, and isolates pieces of memory, which VM can use, so that anything running inside VM cannot bring harm to my real OS (am I right?). Though I do not use virtualization very often, and when I use it, it is not very serious (VirtualBox or Qemu), it seems to me, that Intel TXT is very useful, as there is no such thing as "too much security". However, Intel TXT(LT) is disabled by default in my BIOS, and the question arises: if it is not enabled by default, then it is not recommended by MOBO manufacturer. So, could you please explain - Are there any reasons _not to use_ Intel TXT(LT) in my usecase? Can there be any problems with it? Thank you.
