Legal After Microsoft's extortion racket has failed to stop Android, and after Oracle's crazy baseless lawsuit failed to stop Android, and after Nokia adopting Windows Phone failed to stop Android, Microsoft, Nokia, and Oracle are now grasping the next straw in their fruitless efforts to stop Android: they've filed an antitrust complaint with the EU, claiming Google unfairly bundles applications with Android.

"Install anything other than Windows RT on a Surface RT device?


Valid, but not really fair. Who buys a tablet (Nexus, Surface RT, etc.) just to run another OS? Ubuntu super-fans maybe? Alternatively, can I install Windows on a Google Pixel?
"

I wouldn't have thought there would be any problem installing Windows on a Chromebook Pixel. Do you know of any problems?

"How about "secure" boot that really just makes it a lot harder on alternative desktop OS vendors?


How can an optional feature cause so much trouble? Do you complain equally about Chrome OS "verified boot" and Android's locked boot loaders?
"

Is Secure Boot optional on a Windows 8 pre-installed laptop?
