This simply isn't the case. Free Sofware— and the success of our ecosystem— depends on not just the ability to be personally free but to have the freedom to pass those rights on to other people.
If "just turn it off!" was enough for me it would also be enough for Fedora.
And again, there is no guarantee that it will be deactivatable. It was not until Redhat fought to fix that, and windows 7 existed before then.
As far as the corporation comment— Microsoft and RedHat sat at a negotiation table making these decisions, I'm not saying that I should have been there— but where was the non-profit and/or governmental party representing my interests relative to my ability to distribute software which will easily run on the widely available computers tomorrow?

And Fedora could work to make it easier. In the short term where getting the firmware consistent isn't an option having good help would be an option. This would leave all users, distributors, and authors equal and working towards common goals.
