Yay Microsoft?

Tuesday, November 15, 2005
In a rare moment, software megacompany Microsoft is standing up for the little guy (that's us) against music and entertainment megacompany Sony. As has been previously reported elsewhere, Sony decided that in the interest of securing its intellectual property (that's the artists' music, of course) they had the right to install a root kit on the Windows machines of anybody who inserted a Sony-produced CD in the CD-ROM drive.

This is a Bad Thing(tm).

What gives them the right? This is MY computer. I purchased the CD (or at least, technically, the rights to listen to it.) I did NOT in any way, shape, or form give you the right to install your malicious software on my PC, thankyouverymuch.

This message brought to you by my Macintosh and the letters "f" and "u".
