Editorial Does Windows 7 contain more DRM than Windows Vista? Does Windows 7 limit you from running cracked applications, and will it open the firewall specifically for applications that want to check if they're cracked or not? Does it limit the audio recording capabilities? According to a skimp and badly written post on Slashdot, it does. The Slashdot crowd tore the front page item apart - and rightfully so.

Ah yes, the goal justify the means. Good thing that has never gone horribly wrong.

"The ends justify the means" only makes sense if the means has to be justified. FUD is a weapon against the mind. It's used in business, it's used in your personal life. Even the US Military uses something that resembles FUD against its enemies. Is FUD justifiable on it's own? Well that's just a subjective question.

But I think this kind of FUD is effective, that's my contention. Windows 7 FUD will by and large hurt the reputation of Windows 7. This article claims something different but fails to go into any detail on it.
