Editorial Does Windows 7 contain more DRM than Windows Vista? Does Windows 7 limit you from running cracked applications, and will it open the firewall specifically for applications that want to check if they're cracked or not? Does it limit the audio recording capabilities? According to a skimp and badly written post on Slashdot, it does. The Slashdot crowd tore the front page item apart - and rightfully so.

how do i word this without admiting to piracy (hypathetically of course)....as someone with the latest (was there a recompile this week?) beta, and someone who is stress testing the hell out of it, I would have (only in theory of course) tested many many pirated apps as i couldnt possibly aford Maya, 3D studio max, autocad, lightwave, photoshop, dream weaver, _________(insert large expiensive piece of software here), and I have yet to see (that is if I did that, which I don't) a single nag or, "OMG pirate! report to Microsoft?" warning pop up.

But I can't be certain of course as I didn't do any of those things (shifty eyes)...
