Purposefully crippled Windows

Warning: The following article is a "geek" article.

If you are not interested in "geeking," kindly move along.

If you are interested in geekdom - specifically Linux and Microsoft, I'd love to recommend for your light reading the Groklaw article analyzing recent patent activity from Redmond, and how it bodes for future modularization of the Windows platform (Vista is a purposefully defeatured system, and this article examines Microsoft's apparent plans to more fully defeature future versions of the OS).

Not for the light-of-heart.
