Unfortunately, there is no real Open Source discussion here.
It's only about the government working out a way with MS to be able to access anyone's computer with a special key.
So now, not only you get less rights on the files legally purchased because of the DRM, but on top of that, the government can control it, and do even more on your computer.
I don't even think Open Source would do anything "positive" for the governement in this specific case, since you can encrypt any drive with open source tools without giving backdoor access to the government. I don't think they want the people to know about it, since that would mean less control.
