What I believe is irrelevant. You're proposing emotional reaction based on a future hardware requirement that has not been proposed, is not in the interest of Microsoft or their OEMs post-Windows 8 requirement efforts requiring the disable feature, all for the singular purpose of destroying a 1% market. And I think your proposal is highly irrational and without merit.

Yes, let's have emotional breakdowns on list in the meantime too. Great use of time.

Clearly what every company wants more than growing their markets, is to have pissed off angry customers who were forced into being customers, because their prior platform was willfully destroyed in a wild but massively successful conspiracy. There's simply no potential for saboteurs in that market growth strategy. All for a 1% claim.

Based on this, Microsoft might want to, I don't know, blow up Longhua, to make Apple do a face plant. That'd translate into some real market growth for Microsoft.
