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).

So my point if you really want your favorite OS on a device, support the device maker that makes that for you and JUST buy this device.. That would even up your marketshare.. Who knows the rest of the world might even stand up and take notice and make it more successful to buy the product..

Android devices technically run on a free OS..
