black box 4 windows?
 
hey guys check out this article: http://www.webpronews.com/news/itnew...Mysteries.html

The new mechanism will work like an aircraft's black box, said Gates, allowing detailed information like which programs were running at the time of the error and the contents of documents that were being created.

Privacy concerns were not left unaddressed though, as the black box allows users to edit what information is being sent to Microsoft.

This would not, however, prevent employers from being able to see a list of websites visited, videos running, or contents of IM's being sent.
microsoft innovation right? (or is that an oxymoron) ;)

when i read this i was thinking "thank god im not using windows"

ok. what´s next? you get only terminal client and use longhorn2 remotely from microsoft´s server? that way they can get even more information when windows crashes.

dont say that you may have just giv MS an idea, and they will try and say its to cut down software piracy lol

the only thing then would be what happens when the terminal server crashes?
