Windows And so the war on general computing continues. Were you looking forward to ARM laptops and maybe even desktops now that Windows 8 will also be released for ARM? I personally was, because I'd much rather have a thin, but fast and economical machine than a beastly Intel PC. Sadly, it turns out that all our fears regarding UEFI's Secure Boot feature were justified: Microsoft prohibits OEMs from allowing you to install anything other than Windows 8 on ARM devices (the Software Freedom Law Center has more).

Defensive much?

Sad to say. But he's right. Having been a long-time member of so many minorities (sometimes even a minority within a minority within a minority) I've come to realize that it's best to just celebrate my differences from other people, even if alone.

MS knows how to herd a mass market. Except, so far, on cell phones. A ray of hope, perhaps. But they may yet succeed there, too. They are nothing if not persistent.

But not so persistent as are my cold dead hands, fortunately. ;-)
