Hardware based on MediaTek SOCs

If this is true you should seriously avoid anything with a MediaTek SOC inside it ... even if you don't intend to put an ordinary Linux distribution on it you would fund evil anyway just by buying it.
I should have done a little research before buying my MT8125 based tablet :-(
