Windows 7 Propaganda Blitz

Having grown up listening to propaganda via Radio Moscow and the general way information was used during the Cold War I can certainly spot the use of propaganda to advance a viewpoint. Having said that I notice in articles about the new Windows operating system 'Windows 7' like this one - there is a noticeable crushing of dissent against the operating system. I mean crushed - I see someone say it's a piece of DRM laden crap like Vista is and they've got 55 -75 negative Diggs against them. Really? Anyone saying something from the Microsoft Chamber of Commerce approved list of comments is given loads of positive Diggs. Well there you have it, Windows has discovered how to work the Community comment systems to make their crap look like beloved stuff. I call Shennanigans on Windows for that, - here is an idea for you - make your product something that people will honestly like. What do you think? Wouldn't that be the best way to get those good sales you want? Good product = good sales. Crap DRM laden, user unfriendly and rights taking away operating system = bad sales and justified derision.
