Windows Both Mozilla and Google have expressed concern over Windows 8. Microsoft's next big operating system release restricts access to certain APIs and technologies browsers need - only making them available to Internet Explorer. Looking at the facts, it would seem Mozilla and Google have a solid case - coincidentally, the responses on the web are proof of the slippery slope we're on regarding ownership over our own machines.

Here's a crazy idea, why don't you just use Linux?
I mean okay that might sound crazy to Windows Lovers, but hey, if you don't like what a firm is doing then vote with your wallets, or in this case your right to download and use a different operating system. I'm sure Microsoft will get the idea.

Linux is the only real way to progress, why regress with Windows or Mac?

Well, see, the problem is that us Linux users that would like to try something different than the typical x64 (like for laptops, maybe), are locked out of using all those new ARM-based computers when the come out preloaded with Windows 8. Why? Because Microsoft wants to monopolize ARM next, after which they'll probably try to kick x64 to the curb.
