A lot of people look for the worst in others, and i try to generally play
the other side. Look in the snip i did above, and try to read what else the
guy is saying: He doesn't like DRM in principle, but realise that the carriers
like it enough that if Nokia's handsets did not support it, they wouldn't do
any business (they make a LOT of money through subsidised handsets). This is
something people might have understood here as well, if they had attended
Knut's talk at FOSDEM this year, where he tackled the subject as well. It was
a rather enlightening talk for a large number of the attendees as i remember
