Windows We already know some of the directions Windows 7 will be exploring: a system-wide multitouch user interface framework, a focus on performance, all while building on top of the groundwork Windows Vista has laid out. While off-hand remarks have been made concerning the operating system's release date, it appears Microsoft now formalised the release date of Windows 7.

One thing MicroSoft won't improve in Windows 7 is the DRM situation.


When did you encounter DRM, if I might ask?

Cry wolf all you want, but it's going to get you nowhere. Once DRM finally really starts impeding upon people's usage of computers, no one will believe you.

When i tried to play an HD-DVD on my DVI-but-non-HDMI TFT. When i wanted to use my Hardware accelerated 3D Soundcard on Vista.

In the last few years, i often said if Microsoft would push any further i would make a switch no matter how painful it might be. Vista finally made me do it.

You cannot play HD-DVDs on ANY player on a non HDMI TFT and not get degraded quality. Why should windows be different?
