The Greens in the UK have determined that Vista is not for anyone. Microsoft's Vista will pollute the environment more due to forced upgrades from DRM. Interesting argument.


Beneath the gloss they have hidden traps that take away important consumer rights, force expensive and environmentally damaging hardware upgrades. All computer hardware, such as monitors and sound cards, will have to obey Microsoft's rules for encrypting content in order for consumers to use Vista to play 'premium' content, such as Blu-Ray and HD DVD disks. Although it is unlikely to prevent copying, it will make Vista more attractive to Hollywood film distributors, while also locking them into a Vista content distribution system.
