Well, even android does boot locking, and good luck getting an iphone to run anything other than ios.
Adam knew he should have bought a PC but Eve fell for the marketing hype.

Homeopathy is what happened when snake oil salesmen discovered that water is cheaper than snake oil.

Hmm. They say Windows 10 Mobile has Secure Boot locking, I wonder if that refers to tablets and phones only? Does Windows 10 Desktop run on desktops and laptops?

More like they don't want the US government and the EU launching anti-trust investigations against them.
