Bruce Schneier discusses Vista security in his column.
The argument is that MS is scamming Hollywood and big music with its DRM scheme. The usual story is that MS is doing *AA's bidding by forcing DRM down the Vista user's throat. Schneier argues that the *AA folks are falling into a trap. Since Vista may be the dominant desktop platform, MS will own the distribution channel and will be calling the shots. Apple pulled a similar stunt with iTunes. Schneier is usually prescient and I think he's right again. One thing is sure, we lose no matter whether big content, MS, or Apple control media distribution.
