Currently they can't force that on the x86/amd64 desktop market, because of anti-trust issues.
But maybe they can force it on the server market ?
Also if Windows 8 would be unpopulair on x86/amd64 and Microsoft lost a large share of the desktop market. In that case they could force it on their desktop market OEMs too.
So if the Year of the Linux desktop ever happend, they have a weapon ready ?
I'm very unhappy with this situation.
