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).

Score -11, it is strange that supposedly operating system enthusiasts who one should think posess higher intelligence, doesn`t see the morality I have pointed out.

What I am saying is, MS is a bit like a rapist.

"Here, buy my systems and have a good time with the computer".
-"Hmm.. I`ve heard a lot of bad things about you.."
"Nonono, these are all just allegations".
-"hmm ok, probably just ignorant people".
"And look here, there is the start button".
-"Dude I am kind intelligent here, I would enjoy some more sophistication".
"No we believe in the lowest common denominator. Now suffer for the sake of your lesser intelligent countrymen".
-"Ahh, yes.. I`ll sacrifice myself for my countrymen. But wouldn`t they enjoy my intelligence. Aren`t people like me the ones who actually run the show? I mean.. If you lack intelligence you can`t do most of coherent sense in the world".
"Hmm.. no. I like to dance and turn around and feel love for my country men. And this might be gay behaviour, but this is no longer deemed mental illness, and you should be asahmed for implying so".
-"Uhh.. this audio stream is breaking up, when I open the browser".
"Then you must increase the latency"
-"But I can do 0.33 ms latency in linux. How is it that a free OS can be better than yours".
"Oh well we noticed that an now try to block it from other computers".
"-Why would you block something that is better than your own system.. Ah these business practises of MS. I have actually heard about them. In hacker cirlces, they are fairly well-referenced".
"No, we had a court decision on MS and the monopoly claimed, and we won".
-"gee really.. Ok so I am supposed to learn all these start buttons and requestes, and get an MS degree, and claim to know something"?
"Yes, we shape your world".
-"Wouldnt actually being able to know the system down to the core, be better, and actullay be more about knowledge"?
"No you don`t need to think. We design all menus and similar things, in accordance to popular culture, so that it all becomes an insane mess of madeup menus and a conjured digital world".
-"mmm.. I see. And this I am supposed to go around claiming is good"
"That is how we make money around here".
-"isnt that kinda like lying and abusing"
"Nonono.." ETCETC. And the story goes on. Still to the very day, to the annoyance of every intelligent man. The only reconizable feature of MS throughout it`s entire history.

WELL ok they had a moment with BASIC. Basic was simple and good, and even as a child I could do it. However as soon as it moved onto higher level platforms, it turned rahter uninteresting.

Behaviour like this in the long run though, I can`t really say that that is anything else than defilement of human nature.

Insight for the few, that seems to posess intelligence enough to understand that this is true.

Or one could just use the phrase "MS is screwing you over". Just don``t start believeing it is supposed to be like that.

The unlimited unfolding of the intelligent mind, is illegal due to commercial structures. What way goes that?
