My System Specs


I wonder if enough public outcry over the DRM would get it squashed?

Strange how a software company looks like they're going to manage to incorporate hardware drm after so many years of the public saying "no way!!!" to the hardware manufacturers.

Remember when the P4's were going to ship with a specific cpu identifier and how quickly that got $h1t-canned?

What worries me about this is that consumers are not going to have a choice to vote with their feet.

The choice is simply not there.....

If we could purchase big-box computers without an OS it might send a message to microsoft that we're not interested, but as it stands any person purchasing a pre-built computer is going to be getting Vista whether they want it or not.
