Yes, but this is what the community was discussing all along when it was announced.

As always there were the cries of saying that some people were exaggerating, well now reality proves once again, how true those warnings were.


How is it Microsoft's fault that the community are too lazy to actually find out what the certification process actually means? nothing has been proven other than a buggy firmware can result in an end user with a non-Microsoft operating system having a crappy time. Sorry but join the line of pissed off end users who have buggy firmware resulting in them having a 'bad time'.
