My System Specs


This has been "known" of since before the Developer Preview was released.

I'm fairly certain it will only be on OEM devices and unlikely to see ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI, etc to be enforcing this on their consumer motherboards. If you go and pickup a tablet at the store, or a laptop/desktop, then I'm 99% sure it will be locked down.

IMO it's just like the scary WGA during the XP days, but it was quickly worked around in perhaps not-so-legal manners, but the fact is, any protection can and will be broken.
