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.

DRM itself is "black helicopter". No-one is allowed to know who it works. There is something in Vista that sucks performance, and DRM is an excellent candidate, given that it is invoked at 30ms intervals.


Stop lying, lemur2. As I've already pointed out to you in a comment you so skillfully ignored: the protected paths (the DRM) and thus the polling are only invoked WHEN YOU USE DRM'd CONTENT. Since practically no media make use of the protected paths, THERE IS NO POLLING.

Got it?
