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 like Ipad2, and I like the fact that I can't ever install any alternative operating system on iPAD


Good for you. Nothing wrong with that, you're the exact representative of the Apple target demography. But, sure you must know there are a whole lot more of other people that don't belong to that camp.
