Default WP7 Screen capture not on any update horizon at present

Microsoft's Director of Mobile Communications, Aaron Woodman replied as follows, after being asked if screen capture from WP7 was on any shortlist for forthcoming updates:

"I have never sat in a user group--and I sit in a lot of user groups, a lot of retail groups--I've never heard an end user go 'why can't I take a screenshot of that?'"

"The reality is, we have a DRM requirement for our marketplace, which makes things like HDMI and those types of things out, more difficult. We've made a choice to have a more protected set of content on the phone and available to consumers, so we do have restrictions within that."

So - don't go expecting screen-captures anytime soon from MS with WP7 !
