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.

The big deal is...

I kind of wonder what the problem is.
Microsoft Windows operating systems are built up from (to most people) closed-source, proprietary code which most mortal won't be able to inspect.
Although I guess the NSA can, a.o.

As such, you can't be sure of anything that's going on in the system anyway. Then what's the big deal with the DRM stuff? It's not as if there are no alternatives.

I don't think if you choose to run Windows you have any right to complain. Well the right's there, but it's meaningless anyhow. There's only one way to complain in a capitalist society: Don't Buy It. (or stop complaining)
