OEM’s interject themselves into the boot experience?
Authored by: Anonymous on Wednesday, March 27 2013 @ 01:05 PM EDT
"Problem: Replacing the Windows product registration mechanism lets OEM’s own the process and prevents Microsoft from building into the registration process future valued added Windows Services. In sum. it lets OEM’s interject themselves into the first boot customer experience and offer customers valued added services before a Microsoft proposition of similar services."

"Recommendion: OEM’s be allowed to define the client UI portion of product registration. However. they must submit the product registration information to a Microsoft product registration server using the Microsoft registration transport. It’s strategically very important that Microsoft owns the transport so that it can build upon this clientserver interaction." link

`One thing I find myself wondering about is whether we shouldn’t try and make the “ACPI” extensions somehow Windows specific.' link

Linux and FreeBSD do not work with this motherboard due to it's ACPI configuration, using a disassembler program, I have found that it detects Linux specifically and points it to bad DSDT tables, thereby corrupting it's hardware support." link

Hispalinux anti-trust complaint -- Wasn't there an (ancient) Microsoft memo on this?
Authored by: albert on Wednesday, March 27 2013 @ 01:46 PM EDT
Is there a Spanish speaker who could get these documents to Hispalinux? (or at
least see if they already have them)
