I'm thinking about making a dual-boot with it, but I have hardly any hard drive space left. Time to buy another...

You're...particularly surprised?

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Coldplay, I dunno what it is about them but they bore me immensely, I can see why people might like it, but I dislike it for similar reasons to why I don't like Oasis and other mainstream indie... though I tend to avoid the mainstream anyway, so my opinion isn't entirely unbiased. :P

Hmm... I took a leaf out of Eraser's book, and it is a lot deeper than the "Indie" moniker normally implies, but I just can't get into it; it's too static for me, too structured and chorus-y. Don't get me wrong, I like songs with choruses as much as the next person, but not when a song's trying to be mature and deep, I hate repetition. I don't mind a repeated snippet of lyric, especially if it's a good lyric and most importantly it doesn't disrupt the flow of the piece: no matter how good the rest of the piece is, if it stops and goes back to a previous bit, identical to that, then it just destroys the flow of the song.

Coldplay have improved with Eno producing though; he adds his trademark synth flourishes and livens it up a bit, but they still sound too mass-produced for me...

On the subject of Mass Production, though:

The mainstream was better before massive conglomerates got their monopoly-grabbing hands on it.

Anyone heard any good sort of fast, edgy music with a touch of funk, by a band no-one's ever heard of? I would love to hear some music like that... I've had a bit of a '70s live acoustic binge lately...

Well, everywhere isn't a bad place to start... At least you're not biased that way. That said, every genre has its good moments, it's just a pity they don't get heard more...
