LXer: Microsoft, not third parties, should be the one jailbreaking Windows RT

Published at LXer:

The perverse incentives created by locked-down platforms promote insecurity. Windows RT hasn't been jailbroken yet, but the first steps towards opening the platform to enable it to run any program, and not merely the ones that Microsoft authorizes, have been taken. Microsoft's reaction so far has been quietly congratulatory, praising developer clrokr's ingenuity, but suggesting that the operating system flaw he took advantage of may not be a permanent feature.
