This, in context of MS, means they have been so completely pwned that they've now decided to do ONE THING their customers want.

This is only to shut you up, not because they give a fuck about you want.

If they gave a fuck, there would be a new version of Windows 7 coming out and Windows 8 would be dumped.

Heheheh, use SAR Tool much? I remember those days. Pretty bad when they have to have a special removal tool to get the software off your machine.

Plus you have to wonder what back doors were created to allow it to be possible in the first place (since other software should not be able to remove your AV).

And on the OTHER other hand, why is installation ON by default? People don't go looking for Ask toolbar when they download CCleaner, they wanted CCleaner. Why would CCleaner allow themselves to be associated with someone who is the very opposite (tracking browsing and adding cookies) to what CCleaner does?

(I know the answer, but just adding a corollary to your point).

"allow anything to run, only run stuff from registered developers, and only run stuff from the Mac App Store"

I know it's antithetical to Mac users, but I'm sorry where the fuck is the option to allow ONE specific non-App-Store program (after an intensive barrage of warning dialogs)?

Shit in your bed, then whinge because you have to lie in it. You can't fix stupid, but we've been giving users the stupidest possible options for protecting themselves for years.

Even in our (Australia's) supposedly modern democracy, politicians can say anything at all to get elected and can't be held to it once they are. And once they're in they can hide behind things like parliamentary privelege and say anything they like without having to prove it's true.

There is NO true democracy anywhere in the world as far as I know.

You haven't been burned just once. Every car that's been made with built-in iPod support but no equivalent open standard connector has been made obsolete by Apple, so you've been screwed by proxy via your automaker as well.

We should boycott this shit so hard, I already have a useless connector in my car and I'll be reminded every time I sit in it that that's Apple's fault.

User hostile.
