And I expect this idea of preventing other OS's from being installed on Win8 ARM hardware will not fly in the EU.  It's
anti-competitive.

In fact, the whole concept of preventing dual-booting, and requiring x86 hardware to come with Secure Boot enabled by
default probably won't fly either.

That too is anti-competitive.
