The truth of the matter is that we can't do anything about this, hollywood has won.

Everybody and his mama will buy this OS and you know it. Sure, there will be complaints, but they will soon subside and life with DRM will intermingle and get along.

All we can hope for is that gas will go up to 100 a gallon and no one will be able to afford a computer.
