Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "It may be a brave opinion but I predict that Ubuntu Linux and Windows Vista are going to be the two operating systems that will take over the largest chunk of the desktop OS market during the next couple of years. This comparison is based on my experience with both systems during the last couple of weeks on two different computers."

You can definately use that as a quote from me. I have never defended "monopolistic" abuses, especially "obscene" ones.

In any argument I have had with you about DRM, I have been arguing about the idea, not the implementation. I don't have a problem with DRM, I do however have a problem with AACS, and refuse to buy HD-DVDs because of it. It is naive to say that there should be no protection at all on media under no circumstance. It is just as naive to go to the level the MPAA has with ACSS, since people will crack it no matter what they do. All they do is hurt their legitimate paying customers. Same deal with windows activation, people will always find a way to hack it. That doesnt mean MS should just let them do whatever they want, but they should keep that fact in mind when developing protection against it.
