Windows According to Microsoft beat writer Mary Jo Foley, word is that "Windows 7's mail, photo-management and movie-maker subsystems applets are all being replaced by optionally installable Windows Live equivalents." To many, replacing subsystems with services is a good thing. But what will the self-professed geeks think? Cnet seems to think that "Windows 7 must appeal to geeks--or else!"

"The only compelling reasons to move from XP up MS's tech-tree are Directx for games, and the artificial restrictions they put on BluRay's DRM."

MS didn't put the restrictions there because they wanted too, they put them there because if you want to support BlueRay, and not get slapped with a huge DMCA lawsuit, the only way is to play ball.

Do you really think MS wanted to take the time to put all that crap in there when they had more important stuff to do (like WinFS)? I don't think so.
