I'm shocked that the DRM issue isn't up there next to the Red Rings of Death, seeing as they kind of go hand in hand. If you buy content (e.g. XBL Arcade games) on a system that dies, and then receive a refurbished one, you cannot play that purchased content without using the profile that made the purchases, and you have to be connected to the Internet. That might be fine for people who only have one account, but for a family guy like me, we have three different profiles for the various members of the family.Now that I'm seeming to be experiencing a second-go with the Red Rings again, the fact that I'm going to have to be on the phone with Xbox Support to try and get all of my games playable on the new system is going to be a major pain in the ass. Almost moreso than the time it'll take to have the system repaired.

I can buy a PC and avoid Vista. You get a 360, chances are you're getting the red rings.

I voted RRoD, even though I never had the RRoD, but I had 4 systems die, I'll classify those in that category.

I voted RRoD because it's the only thing I had to deal with.
