    This is nothing compared to the UEFI mess MS stirred up and then said, "Oh, it's not us. It's up to the manufacturers."

    It may just be coincidence, but I was browsing a site I sometimes buy computers from, and noticed that they no longer had a NO os option. You can select all the different current flavors of windows, but can no longer search for no os. Is Microsoft turning up the heat on manufacturers to only supply windows systems?

    Yes and it's nothing new...

    I read somewhere that the ms antivirus thing was only flagging up chrome where the user had all of the built in spyware enabled... can anyone confirm?

    I hope google can come up with a free OS that can run at par or even better than windows and give it for free and even pay major laptop manufacturers to pre install it all their products. Something fancy and stable like android ;P

    I've only seen android on one cheap netbook, but wasn't impressed with it. Maybe the cheap components were the problem, but the most basic linux distro I've seen would outperform the android I saw. Some of you with more experience with android correct me if I'm wrong.

    We don't need another OS, Linux works just fine. Android is just Linux with tweaking for use on a smartphone with touchscreen.
