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.

Then again, I guess its 'cool' to hate Microsoft.



Interesting how often comments like this come up, and yet no one likes to discuss the reasons people do hate Microsoft. On the other hand, we've just had an article on how Windows 7 beta testers are unhappy with Microsoft. Let's be perfectly honest here. There's lots of reasons to not be happy with Microsoft. Some of it's not their fault, but on the other hand they have generated a lot of ill will by their own actions.

And when it comes to FUD, Microsoft salesmen telling potential customers that open source is less secure because it's open source is also FUD, only we call it salesmanship.
