If Micoshaft Corporation products deletes Linux boot information
like a viral infection (which requires a procedure similar to
viral infection removal to recover that deleted information)
as they do at present to obtain illegal monopoly market share,
then its back to the drawing boards for them.

This is one change needed in the market place to
make Linux adoption easier.

Formal coordinated complaints and action
need to be filed from every user and company known on
the planet to the EU commission and all your local anti-monopoly
legal entities to prevent Micoshaft Corporation deleting, or
in any way falsley flagging your Linux boot information, or negatively
incentivizing through subsidies other OSes from being installed.
After all, SuSE, Ubuntu and other distros don't appear to delete
or falsely flag other OSes installed on a PC.
