There was a thread in the "General" section about Windows 8 - posted either by someone who was ill-informed or just plain trolling - that was quickly closed by Liz.
Well, I had a few things I wanted to say on the subject, so, in a curious sort of way, I thought that it had been pre-maturely closed. But don't get me wrong; I'm not some Windows advocate. But I understand a lot about how the masses think and communicate. There is a sense that if it doesn't run Windows, it is at best a curiosity. And also, that if it doesn't run Windows today, well, it certainly will someday. Note well that the OP's comment about "not having to bother with this 'Linux stuff'" certainly is very telling.
Anyway, as you all well know, MS has announced that Windows 8 will (sort of) run on (some versions of) ARM chips. So naturally, the masses assume this means that there's no need to bother with "That Linux stuff" on ARM chips anymore.
The cynic in me (Who me? Cynical?) suspects that, like a lot of other MS announcements, the whole "Windows 8 will run on ARM" thing is just so much hoopla - designed specifically to try to steer the masses away from even thinking about straying from the fold.
Anyway, I think this is the right forum (It must be, given that the main thread here is "You SUCK!"). Flame away!
And some folks need to stop being fanboys and see the forest behind the trees.
