Looks like the phazing out of U3 is taking effect

I see some effects like 2 of the 3 U3 blogs dissapeered. Also on the U3 software central the spotlight is gone.

M$ is probably gonna make U3 worse, they will probably make it so the flash drive only works on Genuine Windows OSes, also prepare for M$U3GA (Micro$oft U3 Genuine Advantage), if they do such a thing it will probably have spyware-like behaviors like phoning-home info like how much of the drive space is consumed, serial number, make, model,(credits card numbers and other sensitive data perhaps? Wink ) etc.

Lets hope the flash drive companies adopt Paaps and friends before M$ U3 comes out, and lets hope theres a way to uninstall M$ U3 so we can use Papps and friends.

As all of ya should know Micro$oft is the Evil Empire, and Windows (a.k.a. Winblows or Windoze) is their greatest general, so please make a difference and install Linux or FreeBSD on yer Windows comp.

Yeah, w/o it I don't know what I would do. But it seems

that my thumbdrives formatted by GParted crashes Windows, 10-20 mins after insertation, they crash Win2K and XP.
