It’s interesting how the blogosphere has gone rather nuts with Vista. It’s a significant upgrade to the major operating system and will have some “issues”. Personally, I don’t tend to upgrade until I need to. Whether it’s driver issues, no new software (or some piece of software that I want) is issued for the OS, it’s what’s installed on computers when my machines tanks, or some other such thing. I enjoy the Mac OS, but have a Compaq that I’ve been using quite happily for about 2 years (the best Wintel machine I’ve ever had, though awfully heavy nowadays).
Anyway, I’ve heard some of this stuff over the past few months and haven’t given it too much thought. It seems rather outlandish to me. However, it’s apparent that quite a few folks have taken these “issues” with Vista DRM to extremes. Mr. Bott does a nice job deconstructing this one.
