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).

I could go on, about various braking systems that won't work together, but I think you get the point.
...and you find this to be a good thing?

Err in some instances yes when it comes to bicycle components. My campagnolo Ergo 10 speed shifters are specifically mechanically aligned to work with the specific spaces between the sprockets on the rear cassette, which means a smoother shifting action while under load.

Which in English means, my bicycle gears work smooth as silk.
