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.

Waiting for the arrival of Windows 7 is no solution for many of the people who have been unfortunate enough to have been sold a Vista machine.

Well, maybe these people should've done their research beforehand? The performance issues that Vista has isn't exactly a big secret. I'm not here to defend Vista. I'm just saying that its performance issues are probably not due to the DRM, but more likely the WDDM not being very optimized, the indexing service (which constantly thrashes the hard drive), among other things.

As far as my waiting for Windows 7 goes ... I have been clued in enough to have avoided Vista so far ... why would I possibly have any interest at all in letting someone try to sucker me into using Windows 7?

If you are not interested at all in either Vista or 7, then why are we having this discussion? You seemed interested in aquiring a copy of Vista without DRM, as you expressed concerns about the performance issues being related to DRM.

So I told you that 7 does not have these issues, so you could skip Vista entirely and just pick up 7, but now you're asking me why you would you possibly be interested in either? I don't know.. you were asking about it, so I assumed you were interested, but I guess you're just here to troll afterall.
