XP is my last Windows version. Anything beyond that is just DRM infected spyware/Treacherous Computing. I am not knocking W7 - their ideas of reducing bloat by modularizing are great - they should have done that years ago. My problem is trust - I stopped trusting them years ago because of their business practices and their shoddy products. Since I only use Windows for gaming, when XP stops functioning on available hardware, I guess I'll need to buy a PS-whatever and get used to the gawdawful controllers...!

Sorry to say it, but if you have a pdf reader capable of dealing with protected documents, you have been DRM infected.

Only solution is to throw your computer out the window, douse it liberally with gas, and then set it on fire (only way to kill all the DRMs)

I use OpenSource software only. The only reason I have a Windows box is for gaming. No DRM on my Linux system, never has been, never will be.
