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).

Still even though I prefer Linux, I think we are being too hard on Microsoft for this.. Apple, Samsung, etc as previously mentioned are just as responsible. Why is it we only care about the vendor hold 90% market share. If Microsoft goes under, then we will pick on Apple, come on people stop making noise just to be heard and get linux in the spot light.
