HMMMMMM looks interesting, I hope this isnt the one thats going to be hardware protected. Microsoft are pumping out too many os's when they still havent even perfected the old ones

Lead paint: delicious but deadly!

Its interesting to note that it's planning to release it in 2004... partly because MS wants Palladium based hardware available...

Interesting to note that people are touting this as a Security measure for privacy and against Anti-Viral protection?????

I dont know how that one came about, I do know this it is NOT!. It's a Digital Media Control, it does not allow software to run on YOUR MACHINE, unless you have digital certificae X_X...

It's against Piracy and invasaion of privacy on your machine because MS has all the keys to the hardware which you own >.>

Funnilly enough, it only affects Palladium based Software, which means Virus such as the ye ol Stoned will still run, Trojans will still infect and Spyware will keep on running...

So much for that argument >.>

Erm, that's a hoax really...

There are obvious graphical glitches, and someone made it with an image editor program. It fooled me at the start too.

I would not be surprised if they where hoaxed.

However still, it was something worth sharing.

Looks suspiciously like XP with a Photoshop attack to me. Oh well, i don't care how many more OS's they bring out, 98 and 2k is good enought for me [B)]

The universe is big so don't complain
