Linux "Red Hat, Canonical and the Linux Foundation have laid out a set of recommendations for hardware vendors in hopes of preserving the ability to install Linux on Windows 8 machines.

People in Asia, South America and South and Eastern Europe use pirate Windows,MS aren't happy with that.

They're relatively almost-happy, we had some big fishes from MS expressing how they very much prefer it to people being exposed to alternative operating systems (some examples: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copyright_infringement_of_software#.22... )
