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).

Can't argue with you there. I have it to run Adobe software, and an email client. Sure, I could switch to Apple, but with what little I do on a computer outside of work it doesn't seem worth an investment. Yet.

Hello "workstation", it's been a while.
