Linux "Red Hat, Canonical and the Linux Foundation have laid out a set of recommendations for hardware vendors in hopes of preserving the ability to install Linux on Windows 8 machines. Windows 8 machines should ship in a setup mode giving users more control right off the bat, the groups argue." Group hug-cheer combo for Red Hat, Canonical, and the Linux Foundation please.

I find it quite ironic that because of this, it's possible in the next few years Apple hardware will be more alt-OS friendly than "generic" PC hardware. After all, they don't give a damn about Windows 8 Logo certification.

Perhaps if that comes to be I will have to consider dropping my personal boycott on Apple products. That, or go ARM all the way, even on the desktop.
