Tom, that's irrelevant!
I can cope with a linux malware but I can't cope with a third-party
company disallowing me from booting _my own_ systems and I can't see any
benefit in helping nor defending such restrictive position.
To be sincere, I prefer my linux (or windows) computer got infected
because of _my failure_ that being at the orders of a _third party_ :-/
