A very good reason why it is better to properly design for, test on, and support more than one operating system.
 
Something some people are forgetting about the Samsung and EFI problem.

If Linux can accidentally brick your system due to major screw up by the device vendor then a virus writer or a foreign power targetting business or military users can do it deliberately, not to an annoying re-install but to a factory return and we all know how quickly those get handled even when it's the odd system not a mass attack.

Not only that, but in this case they now have a worked example of how to implement such an attack.

That's cool, but this is even easier, I think anyway:

I was fortunate to be able to contribute to this round table.
Universities and research institutes are used to pooling IT resources, but cloud computing could take it to a new level

Why oh why is this not surprising? More multiple choice = easier marking = less essay writing skills = student's at uni haven't learned how to write

Let's just solve the problems. Don't wait or talk, don't as permissions. Lead by example.

I hope people start paying attention. Secondary schools should start, more students should choose this field that allows them to shape the future.
