Yeah, not having to hack what you could have already gotten out of Windows 7.
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.
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.
And the debate contines!
Oh boy, here we go again. This is just gonna mess people up even more.
And the point of this is...?
I would have figure it was already SSL.
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.
Bit late to the party
Yeah, we've been aware of this since day one.
Loosing means winning
Because loosing means winning, right guys?
Keep it up, kids! Sooner or later Apple will go broke.
Sigh, SOPA was only the beginning. Can the copyright holders just get with the times already!? Creative Commons happily avoids all of this.
Re: There are lots of cross-platform solutions
I will never get the appeal of HTML5 apps. "OMG, look what HTML can now do!" Yeah, native has been doing it since it's creation.
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.
Please, no more iPhone domination
We don't need anymore "world domination" for the iPhone. Let someone else take the thrown for once.
