HD Audio/Video - PC stirbt aus

Die PC-Architektur ist seit 25 Jahren offenener Standard und erlaubt es Herstellern Zusätze, Steckkarten und allerlei Spielsachen zu bauen. Neuerdings gesellen sich einige Neulinge zu den Herstellerfirmen, welche zwar keine Hardware bauen aber trotzdem bestimmen dürfen welche Hardware nun für High Definition Audio/Video geeignet ist.

Content protection features in Windows Vista are preventing customers
from playing high-quality video and audio and harming system
performance, even as Microsoft neglects security programs that could
protect users, computer researcher Peter Gutmann argued at the USENIX
Security Symposium in Boston Wednesday. ...

While Microsoft's intent is to protect commercial content, home movies
are increasingly being shot in high definition, Gutmann said. Many users
are finding they can't play any content if it's considered "premium."

"This is not commercial HD content being blocked, this is the users' own
content," Gutmann said. "The more premium content you have, the more
output is disabled."

Gutmann, who wore a white T-shirt marked with a Windows Vista logo
during his presentation, first issued his criticisms several months ago
with a paper titled A Cost Analysis of Windows Vista Content Protection.

Gutmann's paper called Vista's content protection rules "the longest
suicide note in history."

Microsoft acknowledged that quality of premium content would be lowered
if requested by copyright holders, the BBC reported. Microsoft defended
its copyright protections after Gutmann's paper came out, saying
they are common features of many playback devices, the BBC article
says. ...

Der Computerbenutzer darf anscheinend wirklich immer weniger Eigentum
besitzen und darüber verfügen. Hoffentlich behält Klaus Knopper bei
seiner Vision in der Keynote zu den Linuxwochen nicht Recht:
