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.

it isn't problematic, linux has netfilter/iptables built in, anyone (or anything) with root can change it.

As was previously mentioned, the only way to stop that from happening is to use more finely grained security. Security is already too complex to start going down that path for windows, at least for the home consumer versions.
