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.

"Even so, I have heard that Vista machines when idle typically consume some 15% more CPU time than do the identical specification machines running other OSes."

Sounds like you've never used it. Mine sits about 1% when idle, except when the indexer is running. Then it may go as high as 15%. Then it settles back down when the indexer stops, which is when it is not idle.
