Windows NeoSmart has published their Windows Vista RC1 Monster Review, which tries a kind of "thorough overview" of everything Vista will ship with this close to RTM. Especially interesting is the brief security run-down. And of course, there are screenshots as always.

And on the topic of DRM CD's

Why don't we as a groundswell do something else unique other than bash OS's?

Try voting for non DRM systems and media content with your money. If there are groups with DRM CD's, then boycot them and favour groups with non DRM CD's.

This has a 2 fold effect.
1. You can do what you like with the media after you buy it and
2. You might get to experience fringe music that is actually artistically derived instead of the bland populous crap that poses as music and would be nothing without the over souped visual crap to help sell it.

DRM is mainly being brought in by the main media/entertainment production houses. These people are middle men in the industry that supress the arts sector with heavy handed marketing and distribution systems designed to limit consumer choice and make them money. Both the consumer and the artists suffer and it is time consumers woke up and realised this.

Most of us have in a for or other but winging about DRM instead of dealing with the assholes that induce this crap is the real problem.

United we stand/divided we fall. Which side do you want to be DRM or DRM-Free? Given the bland crap I see being pushed by the DRM players I certainly know where I want to be.

Not at all. Who is whinging about it? We have a solution - don't use Windows, and in particular, don't use Vista.

A perfectly good solution.
