This would have the happy side effect of making all of those old family portraits of yours public domain.
The same would go for all of those ancient coin-op games that were ignored by their authors until emulators came along.
Nonsense like "happy birthday" would not interfere with historical documentaries.
That's probably because you don't have much on your Win7 install yet, and your old XP system has tons of stuff.
Why do we need to rehash this every time WIndows comes out with a new version? Windows runs well, until you get it a few iterations away from a clean install, and then it bogs down. The registry is clogged, it takes forever to do things that should be instantaneous to a human observer, and we all wind up realizing "Oh yeah, this is still just Windows".
Is there any reason to think that your Win7 system won't run like a dog in a year or two?
If they can figure out a way to implement something like the Emergency Alert System [Wikipedia] on the internet, you might be able to convince me
I would suspect that it should be possible to railroad connections using packet inspection and mangling and railroad people off to a page, video stream, audio stream, Autocad document, or whatever. It would be a fairly brutal thing to do, but it would be functionally equivalent to BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP and a blue screen on your TV. Of course, the repercussions are significantly more severe. On the other hand, the EAS already doesn't help me if I am one of the many who have given up on broadcast television and radio entirely. And, uh, I am. It's not like I "don't watch TV" but I don't watch broadcast TV. I rent TV shows via Netflix.
>>>Each TV channel occupies 10mHz...space 640mBPS
Also your numbers are wrong. 10 millihertz? 640 millibits/s? I'm going to assume you mean 10 Megahertz which is still not correct. Each channel spacing is 6 or 8 MHz, and the maximum theoretical bandwidth on these channels is 96 and 128 Megabits/s respectively, although a more realistic speed with 16VSB or COFDM plus error correction is only 40-60 Mbps - nowhere near 640.
