    I'm not sure if it's actually as bad (but very close) as it initially sounds, I think other operating systems MIGHT be allowed - as long as they are pre-installed besides Windows 8 before shipping to customers. Good luck getting MorphOS (or anything besides Android) through.

    At this point, it is still unknown whether Windows 8 will feature a desktop user interface on ARM platforms or not. There is a good chance that it will only be available on tablet devices (for the forseeable future), which are not very attractive for MorphOS to begin with since its more traditional user interface essentially requires a mouse and keyboard.

    Update: Microsoft has clarified the issue in the mean time. Link: Windows 8 Blog
