Windows Vista includes content protection infrastructure specifically designed to help ensure that protected commercial audiovisual content, such as newly released HD-DVD or Blu-Ray discs, can be enjoyed on Windows Vista PCs. In many cases this content has policies associated with its use that must be enforced by playback devices. The policies associated with such content are applicable to all types of devices including Windows Vista PCs, computers running non-Windows operating systems, and standalone consumer electronics devices such as DVD players. If the policies required protections that Windows Vista couldn't support, then the content would not be able to play at all on Windows Vista PCs. Clearly that isn't a good scenario for consumers who are looking to enjoy great next generation content experiences on their PCs.
Translation: "We're a teeny tiny little entity - we'd never, ever consider using our market power in ways that might help the end consumer - no, we bent right over as soon as the MPAA came calling"
Contrary to claims made in the paper, the content protection mechanisms do not make Windows Vista PCs less reliable than they would be otherwise -- if anything they will have the opposite effect, for example because they will lead to better driver quality control.
Translation: "False positives? Bugs in the code? Never - we'll always properly identify everything, and there will never be any bugs associated with the DRM sub-system. Nope, never. Why, look at how reliable our OS code has been in the past!"
I'd continue, but you get the idea. Here's what I wonder - how many soul points did Nick White lose by posting that dreck?
