Thanks again, Microsoft!

The first big favour Microsoft did to the Linux community was to delay Windows Vista over and over (and over) again. That put into highlight some Linux distributions such as Ubuntu. Not that it was the only reason, of course but it did help a lot. Ubuntu got many deals, in special with Dell, selling per-installed Ubuntu systems to the general public.

Now it’s even better! They’re (thinking of) using a black screen of death security system that if your copy is not legal it’ll lock your computer and die. Pretty much what used to happen with the previous blue screen of death, only intentional.

It’s a mighty gift, much better than the One Ring to Boromir, it’ll force all people that use pirate copies of Windows (the vast majority) to buy legal copies or crack the system.
