oh... its a different thing altogether (Direct Rendering Manager).
Well, Linux (Or I guess the whole free software mindset and Gnu project as a whole) is a DRM of sorts if you think about it. It allows you to restrict what's running on your PC if you desire so, even if it's not actually ceding that control to a 3rd party.
So in a way, it allows you to manage your personal digital rights more effectively, meaning that I guess you could technically call it DRM even if that's clearly not the intended meaning of the phrase. (ie. Corporations trying to protect their income)
