    Microsoft announced they would remove the Sony DRM rootkit from all infected Windows machines through Windows Updates, their Anti-Spyware service, and through the new Windows Defender (which will replace their anti-spyware app).

    Good news if both companies would just go away and die!

    Sony's DRM is spyware, so I'm sure Microsoft would get into loads of trouble if they made exceptions for Sony. Apple wouldn't stand for this either.

    With M$ fans, maybe. Microsoft jumped in to upbraid one of its major customers only after it was clear that Sony would have to reverse course. As you know, Sony has now stopped its misbegotten scheme. Microsoft stepped in to shoot the wounded.

    For future reference: Please post a link to your puff pieces.

    From what I hear, Sony will be going the whole nine yards with their DRM on the PS3, although this is just hearsay.
