Of all the FUD that’s out there about Vista, the false information about Vista’s DRM is the FUD that frustrates me the most. I read this article from Peter Gutmann, and was infuriated. I wanted to write a point-by-point rebuttal, but was overwhelmed with the sheer number of glaring inaccuracies, as well as the overwhelming feeling that I was in danger of being hit in the head by a piece of falling sky. It wasn’t so much of a research paper as it was a ridiculous story full of melodramatic hyperbole.
