+ - Don't Blame Vista

Submitted by Chris Speed
Chris Speed (666) writes "There's been a significant amount of "buzz" circulating on the internet over an article written by a well respected computer scientist and cryptologist named Peter Gutmann, whose article, "A Cost Analysis of Windows Vista Content Protection" has gained considerable notoriety since its initial publication in late 2006. His article mainly portrays Windows Vista as the cause for DRM and paints an overall bad picture of the new OS. But is this article really an analysis of Vista? FastSilicon.com takes a second look at Dr. Gutmann's article and finds many minor flaws and flat out errors."

Show me a man who is a good loser and I'll show you a man who is playing golf with his boss.
