Go to the Microsoft forums and post that you hate bill gates. Then dig a trench around your computer. Put up a bar above your door so you can swing down when the cops come and shoot them all upside down.:2gunfire: :mingun:

EDIT: is it just me or does it look like that guy is only firing out of one gun instead of two?

What is the war...well when this OS is released everyone is gonna be pissed a Mr. Devil..err, Gates and turn to Linux, then there a war. I'm just gonna stick with XP.

I know you cant pass files between old OS' and the new one, but if the whole world has the new one, everyong could still pass files...

Well, if the so called "pirates" in the computing world are a little scared by this, I doubt it will change pirating all that much, as most of them, from what I understand, are in it for the challenge, not profit.

Also, after reading a LOT from that site, I noticed that near the bottom, it pretty much says that if you create something, it is yours, (obviously) and you have the ability to pass it around freely, with no limitations from "big brother" or anyone else if your "liscense" says so.

So, if you think about it, since most of the better pirates know full-well how to reverse-engineer software to an extent, it stands to reason that pirating will not go away either.

The reason being that any software that they "do their magic" on, they would also, most likely, be able to circumvent the ownership part, and "claim" it as thier own, thus allowing freely distributable, though pirated, software.

So, though still illegal, it would be busuness as usual for that community I guess.

Or, am I reading it wrong?

i agree with you rage....its like when in windows XP you had to like "register" your copy or something...they thought it would stop the "pirates" from distributing illegal versions of it... and that didnt work

Yes it will be another challenge for hackers, but I think this one will be the most difficult because of the way it runs. There are so many checkpoints you have to go through, bypassing them would take an eternity. I don't know. Maybe I'm underestimating hackers. Wasn't XP supposed to be unlicensed-software proof? That didn't work out so well.....

They'll have to rename "PC" because with this new OS it's not much of a "personal computer" anymore.

LOL! hehe...

Yeah, I'm pc hardware all the way, but at this rate, if it becomes nasty, and non-personal, it will force me and my fellow users to other os's I think...

A friend of mine is a hardcore penguin guy, and I'm thinking of learning a bit about Linux....... just in case

Yeah, I think I'm switching to Linux anyway because this compter (thankfully not my Maya computer) has some drive errors or something. Scan Disk won't fix the errors, so I can't defragment. Thus, My computer will either slow to a complete halt and crash, I'll reinstall Windows, or I'll buy Linux or Unix and use one of the two. For all of you dreamers out there who want to work at ILM, use Unix because their whole company runs under that OS.

Did you know that you can't have another OS when you have TCPA? Stinks doesn't it?

Edit* - and here's another article on TCPA. It lists some things at the bottom that should be changed on TCPA.

I haven't read all about it, but doesn't this violate any of the anti-trust thing M$ went through?
