  1. What is with Microsoft essentially trying to force people to buy windows 10


    placing arbitrary software requirements just to watch a movie I already own feels like you are just stole my money and are now holding my movie hostage until I upgrade from windows 7... Just give a digital copy to download... I bought the movie.


    So my question is two parts, why are there operating system requirements to watch a movie? And why can't I just have a digital download of the movie I PAID FOR.


    This feels like a gross, sleazy marketing tactics. Whether or not that is the case remains to be seen but I highly doubt the Windows 10 is actually necessary to watch the film, but that it is entirely a server side requirement.

    :)

  3. Microsoft Selects Dolby Audio for Windows 10

    it would've been great if microsoft added HEVC decoders, LAV filters along with other codecs with Windows 10, and developing WMP to be better than VLC, KMPlayer and such sorts of media players.

    Nevertheless, this is good step for microsoft, by far.
