OK. i should end my part in this thread here.let the wise know what is wrong and what is right?and i fully believe in FOSS and the choices,but cant tolerate DRM,that's what i said first and last.
praka123 said:thx for the post @vaithi.i am again saying what is happening in Western countries can happen in India too,albeit it will take may be some time.
What i am saying is that with Vista available in India too as anywhere else,it shows the reach of this lobby of business tykoons and DRM and other restrictive technologies are hindering user freedom which most of you dont mind unless otherwise questioned.
Why does there is this US vs Microsoft for anti-competent business practises? http://usvms.gpo.gov/
as for business FUDs,M$ "gets the facts" campaign too can be taken.
believe it or not microsoft has got a bunch of "bullyies" in the US law making bodies and M$ does push their stance to be laws
M$ did have this tactics of buying its rival companies or destroy rivals buy FUDing.
just let them aware of piracy.restrictions must end there.let the brain-pool be used to resolve piracy.
3.How can you believe something closed source?you been taking things for granted.there is sure M$ spywares even in Vista as it is present in earlier versions of Windows that i strongly believe.
DRM is a rootkit,which works inside ur OS as a region.it means that it can contain anything which M$ or crackers can implant that normal AV or RKhunters cant detect.is a reality.

But thinking of privacy, wont that make Google a culprit aswell. They can easily know more about you if they want to - i guess
Google - What kind of information u search for and what interests you
Orkut - Who your friends are, what your social cirls consists.
Gtalk - Who you talk to,
Gmail - What kinda of mail you get, from whom, when, how much
Youtube - What kinda of videos you watch. We know what guys watch but what the heck......
Blogger - No explaination needed i guess here
Desktop Search and tons more.....

Korrect! U shud spread this word of urs to the masses, write blogs about MS's FUDs!!iMav said:^^ if 1 can accuse a praiser saying he is praising coz he is employed by some 1 then with the same logic why should 1 listen to some 1 who is a competitor .... he will bash coz he is a competitor and actually hates the other person
is it very hard for u people to understand that AMD (they make procesors ... which are the heart of computers - i was taught this in school) along with ati are working to come out with drm at chip level where does MS come in picture here ... all corporates are in this together ... MS, AMD every1 ... apple will have to follow suit and so will intel ... so stop bashing MS for drm ... just coz they looked at the future and doing so in vista they already provided the ability to play drm content u r bashing them .... rational understanding any1vaithy said:Hello,
Hmmm, again starting the fight, so be it...
Dear sukhdeepsinghkohli, Google and other ISP collect the information of the users, they them selves admit it when the services signed but at the same time your privacy is protected with google services.. remember how they stand up against the HOme land Security guys ( one version is they should have provided the users DATA to the GOVT) If they do next minute you may expect some visit from the local consular office goons at your door step(on a mistaken identity) with DRM embebed in your system with or without your permission, you'll be sitting duck to the Redmond's target practice.. It is not you , but they will control what sort of software to be installed and what sort of hardwares to be configured...Once they do you don't have freedom of selecting best hardware ( what best you think need not be best for Redmond)
Since you already know I am not telling that you should not use DRM enabled services, It is your choice so I leave you there..
@ praka123 pl. don't try to continue the subject, there is no need to alarm that M$ is trying to crush FOSS with their money power.. FOSS is not a single organisation neither it depend the survival by the likes of RMS or Linux Torwald.. it is much more biggest and better organised now...More governments in the south Americans states and Africans states are drawing to its magnetism.. M$ only trump card is US patents portfolio ( as told by M$ representative) But their Law is totally variance with Indian Patents and European .. where in many of the countries software is not coming under patent only copyrights can be claimed, only in USA they claimed Software Patents. There fore there is no need to panicky, as India is still maintaining its sovereignty and not coming under USA like Iraq, Open source and Free software Movement is still in a strong wicket..
Youth like you can be immense service to the FOSS, if you maintain the following ethics.
Never attack the opponents directly. state your views without attacking them. Ofcourse, if you are provoked sensible thing is to ignore it but concentrates on your point... you may make more friends even with a divergence audience..
Help the needy newbie in the opensource section, about the installation and other related problems in Linux. Remember.. out of 60 peoples online only six peoples are regularly posting, and if you believe they are against you, simply concentrates on the other 55 peoples who may not post but get the points very quickly..If they believe you are personally attacking , they may get the negative views about your views..
Thanking you all,
Microsoft has a strong Desktop Presence on the other hand Google has a strong Web Presence. What goes behind the scene at Google nobody knows...right ?praka123 said:^yeah me too read that!
Do you want to make companions for M$?do u want google too ?As of yet i dont find any DRM google got.and google is not definitely in the league of M$ as an untrusting company.does google got WGA?
As of yet i feel Google cannot be next M$.atleast they are not a hard-corer against OSS like M$(becoz of fear of lossing OS market atleast some portion)
