Did Mozilla Have No Choice But To Add DRM To Firefox?

kurt555gs Re:Not denying something is different from forcing (406 comments)

What has happened with Mozilla adding DRM is there is no longer any "moral" reason to use it. Just use Chrome instead. Chrome was spawned in the dark side and is way faster.

Nokia Insider On Why It Failed and Why Apple Could Be Next

kurt555gs Re:Innovation? (420 comments)

I am/was a Maemo fan. The N9 could have been the next "iPhone". I think that was what M$ was afraid of. The reason for their war to destroy Nokia.

X.Org Foundation Loses 501(c)3 Non-Profit Status

kurt555gs Re:I smell Microsoft (208 comments)

The new Slashdot. Where truth is modded to troll. This is exactly the kind of thing Microsoft engages in. Anything that is good, and "free" software enrages them to having fits. They can't stand the idea.

Look back on funding SCO to try and cripple Linux. Taking over Nokia to kill off Maemo. And I think they had their filthy hands in this.

What is really sad is that Slashdot is now filled with those that can't see the calculated evil that Microsoft as a company really is.

And being modded down on Slashdot for pointing out even potential Microsoft evil doing shows how things here have changed.
