Hardware, Embedded Systems So, we have Microsoft slowly but surely trying to be a better citizen in the computing world - with the emphasis on trying. After years of dragging their feet, the company is finally implementing web standards in Internet Explorer, there's a boatload of interoperability information now, that sort of stuff. And then, just when you think they're starting to get it - they go behind our backs to do something incredibly insipid. It's small, you'll barely notice it, but dear lord, it's really, really annoying.

1, The manufacturers are plain stupid, since this 'feature' also hurts users of other versions of windows.
They should have implemented it as an option you can turn on and off in the bios.

2. Microsoft were just the usual criminals. They sabotage other OS by rewriting the MBR on install and now by this. Did you consider the option that they act stupid but aren't really that stupid..?
