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.

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.
