    Its BS. Well at least as far as my GF is concerned, he said in his position he would know about this if it was true, he could be wrong but like fyb said, it looks more and more like a joke.

    >MS runs 90% of computers, Linux, and Mac OS will either be compatible or not be allowed to access 90% of web content!

    nobody's gonna put up two servers, once for paladium and one for conspiracy freaks!<

    ahh but you forget that most web servers run on linux, and not windows. Apache is the number one web server in the world, and the windows port of it is not as good as the one on linux.

    your missing the point.

    90% of computers that access that server run Windows, servers must be (palladium) compatible in order for the masses ( windows users ) to access, it doesn't mean anything what you use to run it, it must be (palladium) compatible to allow the masses to access it! the only person to get screwed is you for using non palladium stuff.

    at best we can hope for a segregation of the internet, those who are and those who arn't.

    if they indeed do this its gonna suck ass.

    guess its not a question of worrying about it, its about finding more information. It is, I have to say, quite interesting though.
    Such is life.

    All I know is that I will never bow down to Microsoft. I swear on my life that I will never use Palladium. I totally refuse to have anything to do with it. I will not support a monopoly, and I will see it fall down. Evil can not win.

    I always have to say the same stuff!

    What is the prob with M/s anyway.

    (yes we have done it a million times)

    Captain! What god damn MONOPOLY is this?


    If YOU wrote a decent O/S you may sell it to 50 million users, and then would you have a monopoly? Course frigging not!

    Take £5 from each sale etc. Soon you would be very rich.

    The stuff about Netscape and IE, well yes that could've been handled better. Still wasnt a monopoly.

    OK I am struggling-somebody tell me why M/s has a MONOPOLY going on.


    The real point-M/s make some good stuff and some ****e stuff.

    Personally-my XP is the tops, and office has never failed.

    IE a bit poor-blah blah

    The Palladium stuff is in my previous posts. If it is true I would not change my stance-just buy legitamate copies of stuff!

    But, complete control? (thread) I am not so sure.


    And WHY hasnt Intel and AMD share price soared? I read the ANTI M/S post from earlier who tried to explain this point, but it was very poor.
    Such is life.

    no, im just someone who is informed and is scared ****less by the fact that more and more things are beginning to look like the corperate hell hole described by so many, read 1984. and the masses don't see it, and there is jack **** i can do except try and wake a few up, before its to late, as it very well may be.

    >And WHY hasnt Intel and AMD share price soared?

    what the hell are you talking about! WHY WOULD THEY HAVE?!! palladium is not in developement yet! ITS A BIT EARLY STILL!



    maybe you all should check out why the 9 states were sueing MS, then pull your head out of your ass and take a look around you.

    where on a corperate butt hole, and sinking deeper in.

    look it up there are so many reasons those slimeballs, and the RIAA, MPAA, and Disney, ect ect... with them deserve to choke its not funny, actually its scary they have gotten away with the **** they've done so far.

    and dont freaking ask me to find it for you or post a link, if i did you wouldn't read you just say its BS and learn nothing for yourselves.

    the fact is you automatically ignore anything Anti-MS because you believe its just gonna be "i hate MS because bill is rich", as the MS fanboys have tried to say is the only reason people don't like them. now that's BS.

    and that bull**** is getting old, MS is good!! we're all just jealous!!!

    you go...

    the simple truth is you don't believe MS is a monoply because you don't care! your happy, and it isn't affecting you(YET!!) so it doesn't matter enough to find out. thats fine stay ignorant thats just what they(companies in general) want, just don't defend them when you havn't got a clue.

    Money is power and there's nothing we can do about it untill we stop their flow of money (ie. by not buying that MS OS that is predicted, and buying Linux or something) and then they're screwed. Problem solved

    I can't use it either atm, but I meant find an alternate OS. I'm sure you're gonna have to learn how to use MS' new OS anyway so there's no way around it.

    I just finished looking at MS site on Palladium. My perception is that MS is trying to implement something similar to Trusted Solaris. If you look through MS own documentation (when they still shipped it with the software) you will see a pattern of MS always trying to catch up to UNIX capabilities. We are just seeing another example of this. I would predict that prior MS deploying Palladium, Sun releases a new version of Trusted Solaris that does more than Palladium, is compatable with Palladium and will not require a hardware upgrade.

    The majority of computer users and computer programers have never known anything other than Microsoft. Those individuals are not capable of empathy toward something outside of their experience. If you want to understand my point of view than download and install Mandrake 9.0. Come back here and than have an intelligent opinion on this subject.
