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).

I, for one, I'm extremely tired of all the disregarded "told-you-so"s in relation with Microsoft actions.

People of the bfc (blind fanboy club) should just read up again on all forecasts from the past few years regarding lock-down of the PC as a platform, at least from these forums. And think again.

We still can get to a future where Russia and China will flood the market with PCs of their own design.
