Source Title:
Microsoft to Release Windows XP Home Edition N and Windows XP Professional N in Europe
Story Text:

After a painful castration of the Windows system, robbing it of it's Media Player, the new Windows N will hit the shops on the 15th of this month. I like to have a pop at M$ on a regular basis, but that's the stupidest thing i've ever heard of....

Gotta LOVE the EU

I'm sure this makes perfect sense in the EU - probably privacy issues, or something.

Personally, I *like* media player, and I just turn off the "report to the mothership" options.

It's hard to tell which is the worse "big brother" sometimes M$ or the EU commissionaires.

Damn! Ivana was calling me

Damn! Ivana was calling me when i posted this, on the MS site that image was very, very small, so i just hotlinked it heh....

It looks gloriously stupid though, so i think i'll leave it :)
