    Yeah, the funny thing is they seem to be promoting it as a feature!

    I hadn't really known what this was, but after reading the link and some of their links its truly scary.

    All that in the name of security? I can't imagine it being a smooth transfer. ugh!

    Its a good time to be on a Mac ;)

    The problem with it is that if software developers only only develop for windows because to them that is a security feature. No one would be able to run pirated software on their computers based on the current knowledge on Palladium.

    This to developers is an advantage and although people may not like it they may have to use it because there is no alternative to their software.

    All those PC weenies that say windows is better 'cos they can get cracked software really easily are going to be throwing up when this comes out.

    They'll be drawn to it like lambs to the slaughter, it's microsoft, it must be good ;)
