Windows "Regardless of widespread skepticism, I was confident that Vista would dazzle me, and I looked forward to saying so in print. Ironically, playing around with Vista for more than a month has done what years of experience and exhortations from Mac-loving friends could not: it has converted me into a Mac fan."

think DRM and Trused Computing are further more reasons to convert to Mac or Linux (even BSD? hu?)

Actually Mac's have had TPM chips since the Intel's lines came out (maybe even before that) and DRM? Please iTunes anyone?

Linux may be free of that but not Mac's most definitly not macs....

the DRM is just in iTunes, just in files from the music store. But that's not the idea of apple; more the idea of the music industry.

And Apple does not use the TPM chip in the mac.

Oh they do....or at least they used to I guess they got rid of it with the Core 2.

Thats how they pretty much tried to make sure OSX 10.4 will only run on Apple machines and not just any old x86 machine. They even have a driver in OSX for it.

Either way DRM is something Hollywood and the RIAA pushes into things not the software makers. So if you want an OS that can do things like play HD Discs you will need it...
