Dirty Windows

The inescapable backlash against Vista has begun, even the BBC has pitched in with this article about just what you agree too when you install Vista. Most worrying to my mind are two statements in the agreement:
"this agreement only gives you some rights to use the software. Microsoft reserves all other rights"
"you may not work around any technical limitations in the software"
Hmm, so they (Microsoft) actually reserve all rights for anything you do on your machine with Vista, and if the software has any problems (which of course it is loaded with them) you are not allowed to come up with any work arounds to deal with the problem.

I'll stick with my Mac thanks.
