Re: The OEMs sort-of deserve it

You do realize OEMs are bound by a contract and must pay a fee to even install Windows? if their contract says Windows 8 tablets, they do Windows 8 tablets. You're assuming they have greater say on the matter.

Re: On the plus side...

Unfortunately, 7 wasn't a service pack.

Re: Windows 7?

Microsoft would have to break their backs before even considering adding any ounce of choice between the newer and older systems at the purchase level.

Reports: New Xbox could DOOM second-hand games market

AidanCheddar
Boffin

Tackling two topics

First is the PC topic: ever heard of the Humble Bumble or GOG? DRM-free games up for download at anytime you please. PCs are less effected by these problems. It's usally the publishers that add-in the DRM, not the hardware venders. From an operating sytem persective, the Metro-side of Windows 8 might as well count as DRM.

Second is console topic: this will most likely DOOM Xbox's second-hand games market. Since the they'll likely loose their value. I'm not sure how PS3 will hand this situation, and havn't heard concern from Wii U.

Alert

Community driven is no different

"There are lots of pure community distro's. And wow, they are full of politics, spite, frustration, venality and disappointment," he has a point.

If it sucks, then why would it be wroth watching? The only way I survived Twilight after the first movie was through Rifftrax.

Thumb Down

Ugh...

Sigh, SOPA was only the beginning. Can the copyright holders just get with the times already!? Creative Commons happily avoids all of this.

Official: Cloud computing invented by two technophobic old geezers

AidanCheddar
Facepalm

Ugh...

I hate the term "cloud computing." It's just the internet. If anything, all "cloud computing" is backing up of files to catch at a later time. Since "cloud computing" is becoming more and more integrated into our lives, I use both it and local storage equally, though more so local storage. Because I don't have to pay a monthly or yearly fee to store word documents.
