Vista sucks in a special way

Post by J1NX on Wed 27 Feb 2008, 7:12 am

I don't know how much you all know about the WGA (Windows Genuine Advantage) that is on all XP and Vista computers, but it sucks. On XP it is an afterthought dreamed up by Microsoft to help control media piracy, problem for them is that because it wasn't in the original EULA (End User License Agreement), it isn't required by the user to enable it on XP. Recently it came to my attention that Vista's EULA is different and includes that you must have the WGA installed in order to run Windows. Just as the upgrade from XP to Vista sucked worldwide, the upgraded WGA is no different. It embeds itself into Windows so deeply that if by chance you try to play a pirated Smashmouth CD you will be reported for media piracy and your copy of windows will lock up to a point where you have to call Microsoft and pay to get them to turn it back on. Pretty shitty, but your good ole buddy is trying to find a way to bypass and possibly disable it without alerting Microsoft. We'll see how that goes. Updates as they come.

Bill Gates needs to keep his damn mouth shut lest my balls get cold.

Besides...what's wrong with me listening or watching my "backup" copy?

or maybe you had a choice for the day of hacking into microsofts data banks and changing the payroll infor mation so everyone is getting way more than they are supposed to and thus flushing all profits for the next 10 years OR you could watch your copy of Debbie Does Dallas without paying for it and forget about world domination.

I'm an XP kind of guy, sooo no problems here! I don't really pirate though, XDD. I tend to like to support the product that I plan on playing(if it's a game) or listening to.(if it's music.) Then again, the bigger the corporation or company the less inclined I am to consider actually purchasing the given product. I usually do, though.

Supply and demand in this case was a little backward. Microsoft was the one who demanded people buy it, forced OEM manufacturers to stop putting XP on machines, and supplied us with a broken product.

So what happens when you download a song legitimately and burn it to a disc in case you have to wipe your drive?

See, I don't agree with that. The whole point of backups is if you lose the original. This is just a form of legal extortion, IMO.

You'll learn, that even if you get it free... nothing is truly "free"

Repetitive definition: This statement.

I know I have a bunch of digi-karma on my yang, but I must do more good than bad only because the backlash is never too severe.
