Windows And so the war on general computing continues. Were you looking forward to ARM laptops and maybe even desktops now that Windows 8 will also be released for ARM? I personally was, because I'd much rather have a thin, but fast and economical machine than a beastly Intel PC. Sadly, it turns out that all our fears regarding UEFI's Secure Boot feature were justified: Microsoft prohibits OEMs from allowing you to install anything other than Windows 8 on ARM devices (the Software Freedom Law Center has more).

Both Microsofts and Apples have dubious business ethics (to put it very mildly).


Compared to who? and in what way as you seem to know so much?

How are their business practices dubious?

Why don't you work for the consumer trading standards as you seem to know so much about this?#

You must be an expert on business ethics, why don't you tell me how they are unethical. Do they sacrifice a child per Macbook?
