You just made Mele20's argument. This is exactly why Microsoft is responsible. Companies like Dell are out for profit else they won't be in business. Getting certified and the sticker means they make a profit.
That's fine. I was simply clarifying the requirement / "ORDER".
The way I see it there are two possibilities to squash SecureBoot.
1) The major PC vendors all collectively refuse MS Win8 blessing & sticker (certification). Thus they are all on the same level playing field in that regard. 2) Consumers boycott anything with Windows 8 certification sticker.
I see nether of those happening in any significance.
