Harald74's Journal: Windows Reduced Media Edition

Journal by Harald74

The "Reduced Media" edition of Windows is all over the news. Frankly, I just don't see the point. They yanked out the Media Player, and so what?

Here's the arguments of the pro side, transposed into a different domain:

The European Union has forced GM to release a "Reduced Carburation" model of their line-up. No longer will users be force-fed the stock carburettor, with GM squeezing out smaller carburettor manufacturers in the process. Encouraging the user to take a more active interest in the carburation of their engine, the new models are expected to boost the sales of after-market carburettors. The more tech-savvy users will have to option upgrade to better carburettors like the Weber four-barrell or Solex' latest offerings.

Silly?

(And yes, I know everybody uses fuel injection these days.)
