Windows "Gutmann generated a lot of heat last December with the publication of a paper that called Windows Vista's Content Protection scheme 'the longest suicide note in history'. He updated it in April, mostly to call his critics names, and he updated it yet again yesterday with a top-of-the-page slam at my ZDNet colleague George Ou, who took exception with some of Gutmann's claims yesterday. Gutmann has a flair for melodramatic language and headline-grabbing phrases, but his theoretical arguments against Vista's video subsystem fall apart quickly when they make contact with the real world."

It's 2007, and with decent hardware, and the most advanced OS the biggest company in the software world can produce, you watch video "smooth as butter", and you can even multi task without a problem. Well. Congrats. The funny part is paid for this. Linux is free as in beer and freedom and races far ahead of Vista in capabilities. The really funny part, you are OK with that.
