Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
So now its on-par with a equivalent hardware in a PC laptop?
The OEMs for the most part aren't even remotely frightened of the tiny percentage of us using non-Microsoft operating systems.
You're missing the point; you are assuming that the vendors won't all bend over backwards to make Microsoft happy, even if it means scourging the tiny percentage of the market that wants to use other operating systems on their hardware.
It is naive to assume that companies selling motherboards will behave any differently from the ones selling pre-built machines when it comes down to being able to advertise their products as "windows 10 ready"

Read it again, english-as-a-second-language troll. I said "buy your pizza" not "buy you pizza" where "your" implies you're the pizza vendor. In other words, the potential for inevitable abuses by advertisers presents an unacceptable consumer risk were this technology to be perfected and then legalized for such unregulated uses.
Or you could just... you know... remotely compel everyone in a 2 mile radius to buy your pizza.
E and F are redundant
Yes, I concur. I am a fan of the Rosewill USB 2.0 Adapter - RCW-608 - for IDE / SATA Device. Cheap, versatile, effective. Connect one of these to your average Linux box and doing data rescue operations from ancient hardware becomes as simple as pulling the drive out of the original machine.
