Windows Vista's new spin on licensing


..and why it grates
— 12:21 AM on January 30, 2007

WE'VE HEARD ALL MANNER of tinfoil hattery about Windows Vista's schemes for copy protection, which have prompted the usual round of threats from the usual quarters about how Vista will usher in an OS apocalypse and techies will migrate en masse to Linux. The more realistic types are mostly talking about simply staying camped out with Windows XP for the time being while eying the MacOS world with some curiosity. I'm not onboard with the more paranoid visions of the Vista future, but I do think the uneasiness about Microsoft's plans for Vista has some warrant.
Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
