What is Microsoft so frightened of that they feel the need to "protect" everything like this?


I guess Microsoft's testing lab found a way to port AIDS to Windows, so now they are trying to protect it in every possible way to prevent your computer from dying by infection from a HIV infected hacker.

You don't understand. That's a huge feature for online marketing.

Hi Chrizz,

Can you elaborate on your thoughts ? One line responses are not helping us to understand what you are trying to tell us.
You must understand that this is a site for people that still enjoy using old computers. Think nostalgia. Understand that our machines are 10-20 years old. Understand a PC of that age was consigned to the scrap heap 3 years after it was built.
The MicroSoft business model is based on making you buy a new PC by making the old one obsolete every time they make a new OS. Combine this with draconian DRM with more in the pipeline, and you may want to move away from it. I suggest you buy an Amiga. The guys here will assist you in your quest for enlightenment  :lol:

Yay triple post! Is there an /ignore option on this forum?

On topic: Chrizz, there are probably zero Amiga users here who are willing to agree with you that Vista is "the only OS", so go troll someone on a Linux forum or so..

McVenco:
I guess the triple posts are due to the inefficient OS he is using  :lol:
It is always possible that he wishes to attain the highest number of posts on a forum he doesn't want to be on !!
Sheesh, time for a :pint:

Whats that got to do with anything?  Pablo Escobar was also good at marketing.  So?

[edit] Come to think on it, cocaine dealing and DRM have a lot of similarities.

Ohhhhh dear, so the Amiga is dead then is it ?

hi,

i'd like to see a feature in this forum where the word windows is replaced with a random word thats fits like "bananas" operating system... why should we give free advertising??? and users who insist on posting completely stupid material have their name changed to bill gates.
i will bless them that bless you. i will curse them that curse you. gods promise to his chosen people the jews.

It still never ceases to amaze me how easy it is to keep feeding trolls.

On a side note, I watched that clip and didn't see anything so amazing about it. Clips like that have been floating about for ages now and about multiple OS-es too. (I saw one -literally- years ago for the Sun sparc machines. I also saw something similar a few years back for Macs and as a PC application)

There is nothing there an adequately specced PC/Mac/Etc couldn't do today. Without Vista.

And a far more important question is: What's the use? Cool clip aside, I can't see me use that. It looks like a bad UI design if anything.

Marketing use? Get real, cool clips won't help push more Vista PC's. They're the only real OS supplier anyway and joe sixpacks isn't gonna buy a Mac/install Linux regardless.

:roll: From the thread's title, I though the thread might be about some piece of upcoming legislation, or something significant.  Instead it's just a video showing new hardware with video effects similar to what my Amiga 3000's Video Toaster can do.  No biggie, and years late, I might add.

:-? At least, I think that's all the video shows; I can only see the first frame here at work, where we use....

That's right...

:cry: -Windows2003 Server.  Apparantly it isn't fast enough, though oddly AmigaOS3.5 on a Motorrola 68040 is.

WPF is just another brick in the wasteland of .NET . It actually doesn't have anything to do with Vista other than it's going to ship with Vista.

Why is Microsoft and Apple pimping stuff thats application layer level and playing off like it's brand new OS innovation? They do this because there really isn't much left to innovate at the OS layer and they need to sell customers on upgrades. This is why unix is still around, it does everything you need an OS to do and it does it well.

All of the innovation is at the app layer these days. The operating system is increasingly becoming irrelevant.

:-? Guys, I think Chrizz's troubles with the triple posts are due to using threaded view instead of flat view.  For him, his replies appear directly below the post he is replying to.

:roll: Or maybe he just assumed that they would, because that's what he's used to; I don't use threaded view myself, and so haven't checked....

[Edit]
;-) Just checked.  In threaded view, his responses do make more sense.  (Not much more....)

amiga has outlasted windows 386,3.0,3.1,95,98,me, and 2000 and it will outlast xp and vista as long as there are machines to run it; which with winuae and aros will be a long time.

chrizzzzzz will be back in a few years to say that all os's besides microsoft stupid pro are dead.
Oh yeah?!?
Well your stupid bit is set,
and its read only!
