Bruce Schneier is railing against the DRM in Windows Vista and is advising you don’t upgrade or buy a computer with Vista preinstalled.

Windows Vista includes an array of “features” that you don’t want. These features will make your computer less reliable and less secure. They’ll make your computer less stable and run slower. They will cause technical support problems. They may even require you to upgrade some of your peripheral hardware and existing software. And these features won’t do anything useful. In fact, they’re working against you. They’re digital rights management (DRM) features built into Vista at the behest of the entertainment industry.

And you don’t get to refuse them.

I said it before and I’ll say it again…If you are due for a new computer or upgrade reinstall XP, buy a Mac, or try Ubuntu .
