Microsoft Big and surprising news this morning. Some considered him the crown prince of the Microsoft empire, slated to take over after Ballmer's eventual departure, but this morning, Steven Sinofsky announced his resignation from Microsoft. His role will be taken over by Julie-Larson Green. Persistent sources indicate that we're looking at a Forstall-esque situation; Sinofsky was, supposedly, not a good team player.

The worst thing is, the way things are right now, if you did not like Windows 8/RT and would like to install something else to reclaim your disk capacity... you're technically forbidden by Microsoft from doing so, and Secure Boot is there to make sure that doesn't change without money going Microsoft's way.

BUT... in this case, Microsoft is supplying not only the OS but also the hardware itself (Apple-style), so in this case it is somewhat understandable. Just avoid Microsoft (and Apple) hardware, and hope that some companies either produce Windows RT tablets but do not go for Windows certification, or simply choose to provide Linux and/or BSD variants (which would have no requirement for this supposed "Trusted Computing" bullshit).
