Sony Comes To Its Senses
Steve Bates has posted that Sony CDs
will no longer be shipped with the "rootkit" software on them.
His post has a list of CDs known to have the software installed, but any CD that has an XCP
sticker on it, or is from one of the record companies listed should be treated as suspect.
This is another example of corporations making people pay to be used in a corporate marketing and research program. Just because Microsoft does it, doesn't make it a good idea.
