Windows "Windows Vista includes an array of 'features' that you don't want. These features will make your computer less reliable and less secure. They'll make your computer less stable and run slower. They will cause technical support problems. They may even require you to upgrade some of your peripheral hardware and existing software. And these features won't do anything useful. In fact, they're working against you. They're digital rights management features built into Vista at the behest of the entertainment industry. And you don't get to refuse them."

I hate DRM. More, and more people don't give a rats *&9 about the consumer. HDMI is another freaking DRM conspiracy. To get off topic blu-ray vs HD-DVD pisses me off to. They can't settle on a god damn standard, because each side wants more money, and I have to decide whether I want to be able watch King Kong in HD, or Star Wars in HD. DRM/copyrights/software patents are all BS

HDMI is great stuff, it's just HDCP that sucks.

No they both suck.

VGA for the win! Heh.. I refuse to get involved in the current format war, and I strongly suspect after the corporate idiots burn everyone a few times they'll discover their customers are no longer as willing to buy into new standards as they used to be....
