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.

How about this then:

I'm a developer and I work on Vista Business SP1 with all the latest patches, on fairly high end hardware for 9hrs a day (I geenerally work through lunch).

Me, and *all* the other developers I work with, agree that Vista is a dog slow resource hog.. DRM doesn't really come into our job much though. We all run either XP, Linux or OS X primarily at home, and some of them got rid of Vista at work and installed XP instead.

I have Vista Ultimate SP1 on a high end game capable computer (C2Q 2.83GHz, 8GB DDR3 RAM, 2GB Radeon 4870x2), along with XP and Ubuntu 9.04 Alpha, and it feels slower than my OS X laptop (C1D 2.16GHz 1GB) for general productivity.

Of course you might choose to believe I'm lying, but there's no convincing some. ;)
