Hasta la vista, Vista... oops... I mean "Haste la vista, DRM". 3 years ago, I
stopped watching TV at home. I didn't like it when the flow of information
was induced by the channel. It was not interactive; a very passive
experience instead, which is discouraging. Needless to say, I go nowhere
without AdBlock. In my humble opinion, commercialisation does good to
nobody. It has a price and it gives the illusion that it reduces costs (it's
a cyclic trap). My mind is haunted by the thought of advertisement in
Vista's login screen. Thank goodness I will not have to touch a
Windows/Apple machine again.

Best wishes,
