Content Protection madness on Vista

http://blogs.zdnet.com

I’m a firm believer in the idea that if you pay for hardware, you should be able to make full use of it. However, DRM and content protection mechanisms are increasingly making this difficult for people.

The Biggest Windows XP Myth of All

http://www.thevarguy.com

Do you love going to the dentist to get a filling — if it means you don’t have to get root canal? In this case, XP is the filling you learn to live with because you don’t want all the deeper pain associated with Vista migrations. But that doesn’t mean you love XP.

http://www.teenlinuxlounge.com

You may or may not have heard of it, but the PWN to OWN Competition is an annual competition where hackers get together to try to hack into 3 different machines: a Mac, a Linux box, and a Vista box. So far, the results have been both surprising and unsurprising as well.

Has Dell Delivered on GNU/Linux?

http://www.linuxjournal.com

Almost exactly one year ago, I [said] "we must vote with our wallets. Assuming the Dell GNU/Linux systems are not hopelessly flawed in some way, we must all try to buy as many of them as we can (within reason, of course)." What follows is a short report on my own experiences of putting my money where my mouth is.

Has Microsoft Disavowed Vista?

http://www.eweek.com

Technically, Vista is pure misery. It eats system resources like an elephant does peanuts, Windows applications break and its so-called improved security is a joke. I know it. You know it. Even Microsoft's most devoted yes-men know it--although they won't admit it--and perhaps Microsoft knows it as well.

RE: Windows Vista VS Linux

http://blog.indigio.com

It’s been about 3 months since I wrote my first impressions of Windows Vista (over here). I did not take the easy way out and just bail out back to Linux. For the last 3 months I’ve continued to try to live in Vista… And I’m sure Jack, who shares an office with me, is getting quite tired of my complaints.

Damn Small Linux crushes Windows Vista’s min requirements

http://tech.blorge.com

In contrast with most of its competition, Damn Small Linux (DSL) is an operating system where megabytes are still meaningful. Compare that to Windows Vista’s minimum 20 gigabyte footprint and the line in the sand becomes obvious.

Linux has better Windows compatibility than Vista

http://wine-review.blogspot.com

I have been using Vista for well over a year now (since Beta 1). Of course Vista is slow, its bloated (over 10x the size of XP), aero kills system performance (even though this should be done on the video card), networking is pathetically slow, etc etc. We all know Vista sucks.

But recently my blood has been set to a rolling boil by the fact that most of my games just don’t work in Vista. At all. Its so bad that out of spite I have decided to make a list of games that work better in Linux under Wine than in Vista. These are games that were originally written to run in Windows XP, are broken in Vista, but magically work in Linux.

Mythbuster Jamie Hyneman preferences Ubuntu over Vista

http://www.popularmechanics.com

In the tech world this phenomenon is known as “software bloat” or “feature bloat.” It's a well-documented problem and a frequent complaint about Windows OSs—Vista in particular. In addition to being buggy, the extra features tend to bog down your system by demanding more processing power and memory. Computer-makers: Don't load up operating systems with features and then make us sweat to figure out how to get rid of the fat.
