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.

Not necessarily FOSS Advocates

While there are plenty of Open Source Advocates who will criticize Windows (rightly and wrongly) at the drop of the hat, they are not alone. It is very fashionable among the technology literate to hate Microsoft, including Microsoft only users. A devout Windows user (and hater) who was less knowledgeable than he believed couild have written this just as easily as a advocate with an ax to grind.
