It's not my job to deliver news. Google News, Slashdot, Digg, Reddit and many others do a much better job at that.

My job, as a blogger, is to insert my opinion about the news. As such, my opinion about DRM and Windows Vista is bad bad news.

But, now that you brought it up, I'll weigh in lightly on the matter.

In a nutshell? It would be nice to see both Steve Jobs and Bill Gates put their money where their mouth is. They complain about it, yet, they don't bother fighting it in court, or removing it from their software.

As far as the Norway/iTunes deal? I hope that Norway wins, and I hope a trend follows that makes DRM illegal on a federal level. It's malware- malicious, restrictive and spreads like a virus. Indeed, it is a virus.

One more reason why I use Free Software.

Why would a site like this ignore such important news?
