The Matrix Umladet

[ #12324 ]
I'm spending some vacation in lovely stockholm right now, after having attended artur's wedding (which was really nice).

This of course shouldn't stop anyone from seeing the Matrix Reloaded (or 'Matrix Umladet' in good swedish), and after some deep pondering I think I have figured out the plot.

The entire movie revolves around Neo trying to save Zion. As the Oracle tells him, the best way to do this is to go to the Source. But this Source is closed off well, and he will need help from the Keymaker.

Now, let's substitute some names here and it will all start making sense:

    The Oracle       - A Bitter Hacker
    The Source       - Microsoft
    The Keymaker     - Crack/Keygen
    The Matrix       - WinXP

So what this movie is really about is a young Hacker (Neo), being guided by the Oracle, trying to free people from WinXP (the Matrix) and to obtain the microsoft source code, by cracking it, reverse engineering it and then releasing it back into the public domain.

Come to think of it, it's all so obvious!

Now it's time for the red pill....
