Microsoft The Verge, reporting that Microsoft lost almost a billion dollars with Surface RT, in this quarter alone. "At the end of the day, though, it looks like Microsoft just made too many Surface RT tablets - we heard late last year that Microsoft was building three to five million Surface RT tablets in the fourth quarter, and we also heard that Microsoft had only sold about one million of those tablets in March." That's catastrophically bad.

Secure boot is a good thing, despite your protests to the otherwise.

MBR malware has been on the rise for years.

So, tell me, when was the last time you booted your PC off a floppy disk?

Bootsector malware has been on the rise? Really? What year do we have? 1995?

Most computers are attacked over the network nowadays, not boot media.

This whole justification for "Secure Boot" is just bullshit.
