Το καλύτερο απ''όλα είναι το content-protection, μια τεχνολογία που θα
οδηγήσει σε θάνατο τα PCs...

Το παρακάτω άρθρο με τίτλο

A Cost Analysis of Windows Vista Content Protection
http://www.cs.auckland.ac.nz/~pgut001/pubs/vista_cost.html

είναι πολύ καλό και κατατοπιστικό και καταλύγει λέγοντας

-------------------------------------------

The worst thing about all of this is that there''s no escape. Hardware manufacturers
will have to drink the kool-aid (and the reference to mass suicide here is deliberate
in order to work with Vista: "There is no requirement to sign the [content-protection]
license; but without a certificate, no premium content will be passed to the driver".
Of course as a device manufacturer you can choose to opt out, if you don''t mind
your device only ever being able to display low-quality, fuzzy, blurry video and audio
when premium content is present, while your competitors don''t have this
(artificially-created) problem.

As a user, there is simply no escape. Whether you use Windows Vista, Windows XP,
Windows 95, Linux, FreeBSD, OS X, Solaris (on x86), or almost any other OS,
Windows content protection will make your hardware more expensive, less reliable,
more difficult to program for, more difficult to support, more vulnerable to hostile code,
and with more compatibility problems. Because Windows dominates the market and
device vendors are unlikely to design and manufacture two different versions of their products,
non-Windows users will be paying for Windows Vista content-protection measures in products
even if they never run Windows on them.

Here''s an offer to Microsoft: If we, the consumers, promise to never, ever, ever buy a single
HD-DVD or Blu-Ray disc containing any precious premium content , will you in exchange
withhold this poison from the computer industry? Please?
