Outrageous Microsoft Vista licence

Outrageous Microsoft Vista licence

The New Microsoft Vista license is online, and it is generating a lot of  Buzz on many forums.

It has mainly start with the analyse of Paul Thurrott (the worst M$ fanboy ever created), and has been also discussed on TheRegister (also not always neutral)

Surprises inside Microsoft Vista’s EULA

Here is a direct link to the EULA

I personally really like the point where I am not allow to publish any .NET or Vista benchmark without prior review of Microsoft. This sound like they have a LOT of things to hide. Microsoft has also add DRM everywhere (MS Office document,….) not in order to protect our lovely documents, but to avoid competitors to reverse engineer their files formats. (Yes it is pure coincidental that DRM can not be reversed engineered in USA).
