Hurray for Hollywood!?
Gary McGraw

JANUARY 12, 2007 | One day soon you will be able to watch Blue-Ray and HD-DVD movies on your Wintel PC (well, as soon as the audio-video device manufacturers line up and play by the Draconian rules being imposed by Microsoft if they want to support Vista), but this capability comes at a serious price.

When Microsoft bows to the will of Hollywood in the name of "premium content protection," design decisions in Vista get hairy, and the Vista user experience gets crippled as an unintended side effect. Maybe Microsoft is going too far to implement hard core data security. But why would they do that? Three letters: DRM....
