As I am still leaning to crawl in here, but learning, would like to thank Xtacydima for the TAGES link..it's was an educting thread..lot of people smarter than me hoping for help from people smarter then them...granted the math got over my head, but the gist of it understood
$CyBeRwIz$, Thank you also for your posts, don't really know you, but think I'd be correct if I labled you the voice of reason...we'd all be disturbed...because we'd be afraid it's true....LOL
kid185, no disrespect.....in fact I respect you accept WinMS is the bulk of the masses, so in Win/OS, we figure out how to beat these things. Also in fairness, I've come to agree that while some protections can simply be defeated by bypassing Win........ While I don't think it's impractical to develop "or use an existing non-win os product", it's not practical in the sense that that ISO still needs / wants to be played as burned media on a Win OS box as read methods and hardware restrictions still exist.
I still believe a "non-windows" model has a few benefits, but clearly need to learn more on this subject before I can speak intelligently......
Thank you all for your posts and time......been an great ride.
