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).

For 20 years you have complained

For 20 years you have complained that MS is vulnerable to hackers. Now they attempt to fix it the way it should have been and you again complain.

Get a life you losers. Most of the world needs systems to work. There will still be ways to load your OS. You didn't mind when Apple did this same thing.
