hahh... you must be Mike Cox in disguise.

The last I checked, Windows had 44 critical security vulnerabilities that have not been resolved.

I've complained about this, and also made feature requests to Microsoft regarding removal of DRM from Vista.

Microsoft hasn't fixed these bugs, or removed the DRM from Vista.

Using your logic - Windows sucks.

I couldn't agree more, but why compare with the worst?!

I'm pretty interested in this list of 44 vulns... can you point them out?

About the DRM... I'm sorry that it bothers you. If you really care, just don't run DRMed media, and nothing will happen. The alternative to the current state of affairs is that folks will start writing their own DRM software and destabilize your machine by doing unsafe operations (like the well-known Sony product, or another funny program that was using the Debug Registers for DRM purposes).

One could just make DRM illegal... that'll solve everything.
