The takeaway is: no, neither Microsoft, nor Lenovo are deliberately locking Linux users out of their laptops. It’s just a matter of figuring out what’s wrong. And that’s something Linux community is very good at. Instead of vilifying companies, we should investigate the problem and try to fix it.
It’s actually a good story. I recall my very early days with Linux, when it would be newsworthy if you were fortunate enough to come across a laptop that worked with Linux, out of the box.

Nextcloud Box is essentially a reference device that uses Raspberry Pi for compute and network, and WD hard drive for storage. Ubuntu core is the operating system and Nextcloud is the file sync software.

See, it’s that last part that must bother them. The idea that someone, somewhere, is doing something with an iPhone that they haven’t anticipated, like making a thermometer or payment system or 3D scanner. Someone who hasn’t paid for a license to attach that thing to their phone.
Apple is taking the first step to make sure that never happens. They’re able to do this because no one can do anything about it. They’re in a position of immense power and they’re using that power to eliminate something good and replace it with something that makes them money. It’s not a conspiracy theory, it’s a business plan.
Veda (वेद ) is a Sanskrit word which means ‘Knowledge’. “Linux” Veda is a web-magazine to share and spread knowledge about Linux and Open Source technologies.
We cover tutorials, interviews, in-depth analysis, daily news and reviews. While the focus is on Linux and Open Source technologies we do have an ‘off-topic’ section under which we cover stories of importance, even if they are not directly related to Linux or Open Source.
Our core focus is success stories, where we publishes articles on Linux or Open Source technologies being deployed in different environments and set-ups.
