Windows Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols has written article in which he wonders if your operating system isn't broke, why 'fix' it? If what you're running now works for you, why should you move 'up' to Vista? Joe Wilcox responds to SJVN: "Colleague Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols asks 'If your operating system isn't broke, why 'fix' it?' The very question is the problem. The question reflects a sentiment I hear too often as an excuse for keeping old technologies in place - long after their real usefulness is gone."

It enables playback of HDCP protected HD-DVD/Blu-ray disks and more secure encryption of private files. Despite the FUD, there are no "DRM" drawbacks to Vista over XP.

Sure there are a lot of HD titles to choose from.

How is that relevant? HDCP (and thus the changes to Vista's DRM) doesn't affect non-HD-DVD/Blu-ray sources.
