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.

... as it turns out, there is a dialog box that you have to uncheck an option if you don't want DRM on your WMA files after you rip them.


In this case, you are speaking about a specific application, Windows Media Player.

There are dozens of different apps out there (yes, even free ones) that allow you to rip DRM-less audio files, in pretty much whatever format you choose. There's nothing inherent in Vista that prevents you from doing this.
