    Doesn't mean it's right, only that those are bad people.
    I never said it was:

    Many universities offer server space to mirror OSS projects.
    Probably with very small bandwidth.
    What's this "outside" you talk of?
    Haha. Like y'know, the road in between your house and the computer shop. If you see grass, I think you're outside... or looking out your window.
    Most non linux based OSs do not...
    Er, I corrected myself. *nix OSes.
    Windows, pre-vista
    Windows XP does DRM stuff. Well, on Windows Media Player 11.

    Most (non *nix-based) OSes do ship with it, like Apple OSX.
    OSX is in fact UNIX-based: it's built on a Darwin BSD system. Nevertheless, you probably found the only other example of a DRM-supportive OS that exists Admittedly the number of non-Windows non-UNIX OSes are quite small today.
    And what's that got to do with bad business practices?
    I was explaining that DRM caused extreme amounts of inconvenience and difficulty to users, and you agreed that this was a bad thing that shouldn't be done. Yet you're still in favour of DRM?
    Probably with very small bandwidth.
    No, universities usually have huge data pipes provided by their government.

    No, Windows Media Player does DRM stuff. There's a difference.

    I'm not in favour of it. I'm just wanting to offer a non-biased opinion.
    No, universities usually have huge data pipes provided by their government.
    ...and they have to distribute it equally among the students.

    Yeah, but most people use WMP to watch DVDs. It's like IE... I guess.
