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.

Part of the problem is that I can check to see exactly what linux does. I can communicate with others who can confirm my findings. We can argue about the impact of varius coding techniques ( like the scheduler debate a while back).

This is of course impossible with Windows or any other closed source OS. So basically we know that there is some DRM in Windows, we can only do some external tests to see what it does and rely on the companies good word. So yes, there are more false rumors about windows, but that's because there is less information possible about what it does.
