Posted by mikshaw on Dec. 16 2006,01:58I'm sure this will be seen as a campaign of fud by some, but at this point I see it as a necessary forum to get the truth out concerning an evil business and its latest pile of dung.

Posted by andrewphoto on Jan. 26 2007,00:53I was reading the other month or other year that just Americans spend 330 million or was it billion bucks a year on software and like 60 percent or something is anti virus. So I got to thinking like norton and that perhaps make some viruses, you know what I'm saying, stand up & say it, assassin, no fear.
And I was thinking about that money could process a lump of nuclear waste size of Royal Albert Hall, think U.K. only spent that much on waste in 50 years.
Then there's them redundant Russian subs need decommissioning.
Remember when I was younger that pilot who kept choppering over Chernobyl to drop sand & lead. Wonder if hero is overused like genius. Rastas say mining will ruin the rock. Keep on trucking.

That don't make no sense mon.
Posted by WDef on Feb. 04 2007,17:361. Actually, it makes perfect sense - you have to read Andrewphoto's post as if it was, say, lyrics or something like rap/reggae.
2. From Analysis of Windows Suicide Note part1 (on the badvista website), concerning the high overhead incurred by Vista's DRM:
What annoys me is, since Vista's release, the PR teams are not even having to spin the crippling of Vista by all this DRM, because the mainsteam media reviewers (owned by Fox Studios/News Ltd) are all but ignoring it. If it wasn't for SlashDot I never would have read Peter Guttman's damning analysis of Vista.
Posted by MakodFilu on Feb. 05 2007,02:06As far as I am concerned, Vista is obsolete before launch. If I dare to show the following video in my small business, some people will ask if that is Vista and how to get it:

...then I'll have to tell them that is not Vista, and will never be.
Posted by andrewphoto on Feb. 08 2007,23:13A very good friend of mine came up with an analogy about XP and changing a piece of internal pc hardware, like you go to the mall and buy yourself a new TV and come home and the key doesn't work to get in your house.
I wonder if V deserves a more sinister analogy?

I have Win XP Pro running on one computer here, but "Product Activation" is the very reason I've refused to even look at XP "Home".
