    In the 53rd response of this thread a person who claims to have worked for microsoft is saying that DCOM is used as a means to gather data that relates to registration and licensing of its products from end users. He goes on to explain the fact that Microsoft states in the EULA that any user who does not want this can simply refuse to install windows. Well, that's a nice and workable solution. Simply don't install windows. One small problem, though. At the present time, they have such a corner on the market, that's not much of a possibility for the average user. Also, what 3rd party is overseeing this information gathering, and making sure they don't gather more information than they need to make sure I'm not stealing windows? And come to think of it, who decides exactly what information is needed to find out if a person is stealing windows? Considering the anti-trust lawsuit, and how it ended, I ask this question: Regardless of the EULA, is their behavior criminal? In many countries it is not illegal to do certain things, simply because it's not written in the law. But is it morally wrong?

    The link given in this article used to contain a link to an article posted on the tecchannel site that went into great detail about windows update and what information they gather when you visit windows update, but the article was moved and now i can't update the link, mostly because i don't speak german.

    Just wait till he discovers that the US invaded Iraq.

    No, but it will install on the newer versions of Linux if you recompile the kernel.

    While the third link does make for an interesting read, I'm not too worried about any such schemes actually taking place in the near future.

    I bet microsoft would love to be able to control us that way, but they'd never get away with it, not really.
    There's a limit to what they can get away with, although they do seem to be able to go a bit further than what I'd like already.
