Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Where have you been for the last 15 years?
Oh yes, but I'll still be able to rip the songs from the CD or DVD or what ever media. Come on, with Linux or BSD, I can force the CDROM to turn backwards and decode the SewPrSeKritDRM... or ignore it.
This isn't about Windows vs Linux. It's about how, and how quickly, MS can move everyone that is currently on XP onto Vista. They'll do it by making sure it's on Dells when you buy them. Someone said, "People won't buy it because of the DRM crap." Bullshit. Most people think that DRM -- if they they think anything about DRM -- is the thing that allows them to play songs they download. They just don't get that DRM is actually the added feature of no longer doing what they already do.

Not to mention the problems with it not being certified with the versions of ERP/DRP/DRM/ERM/ACL/TLA Enterprise management "solution" that hasn't even been fully rolled out due to problems with WindowsXP and Office2K3.
Then he points out that the next version of the ERP solution -- which is being force-sunsetted in Q2 -- will not be certified for XP. He then has has a choice between an insurmountable problem -- getting the ERP solution certified on XP -- and a surmountable problem -- getting you to certify a build containing the latest versions of both, getting you to sign on the line that it will work, and getting you to roll it out and support it. Which one do you think he'll do?

New Another good reply.

That's where the "or ignore it" comes in for me.

I know which one he'll do. I'll sign it under duress... with witnesses and a notary staing that I will only do this after careful consideration of the Board, after a presentation that explains the costs involved and how much the possible loss in production, financial implications to the bottom line, pointing out multiple problems with ging to soon. Then and only then, I'll avoid the signage.
