MS Vista - a monitor warning

Something to bear in mind here before upgrading to the forthcoming operating system unless, of course, Microsoft change their mind. Sticking with XP will not help either if you want to properly view HD DVDs and games. Sheesh!!

Just have to closely monitor the situation I reckon! TC.

If this is an example of what they're cooking up I think I'll stick to XP. Interesting article though.

I've always been a very early adopter of each new Microsoft OS, but I don't see this as an issue; I'm unlikely to watch any film, HD or not, on a PC.

It's certainly an interesting example of the problems that can arise with new copyright protection technology.
