The only possible reason Microsoft would include their key is to have future ability to lock down the entire x86 platform for themselves, not at all having a single thing to do with user experience.

Yes it has been brought up ad nauseum, and it's irrelevant to the conversation.

The discussion isn't about ARM. It's not related to ARM. You might as well bring up DOJ action against Microsoft 14 years ago as though it's relevant too.

I'd rather talk about whether or not Microsoft has nukes, and if they're pointed at Foxconn. Cuz clearly their usage has high efficacy for their market growth, and with almost immediate results. The followup strategy, and distraction bonus, will be buying Nokia.
