Maybe it is our own fault.
 
Remember how we complain about the iPhone saying "I don't need to root my PC, why do I have to do it with my Phone".
 
Now MS wants us to have a level playing field with mobile devices. I mean. if its worked for apple and the market does not complain, it may work for MS.

Apparently we may have to worry about breaking the digital locks on our PCs' boot systems before long...
