Outrage is pretty limited though - it's limited to, well, us.
And none of us are affected because as somebody stated above, job #1 is to wipe the corporate laptop shipment and put the corporate image on it. And if we bought it for our own use with our own money, we probably didn't buy the shitty low-end machines that were infected. And if we did, we'd probably still have re-imaged them immediately and thus, not been affected.
The corporates don't give a damn because they are not affected. The consumers don't give a damn because they almost certainly still don't even know and probably never will. The only outrage is here and frankly, we are not important. I know, I know, your ego, all those guys going "I am keeping XP forever because fuck you Microsoft hahahaha bet that made Nadella cry", all the "Sony? Rootkit! Rootkit!" crowd, all the people who hate Apple.... we're not important. We are, in the grand scheme of things, nothing. Nobody cares about your start menu or your Bootcamped MBP or your hacked Dell. To the people who make the money and the people who spend the money, we are nothing.
Lenovo will make something shiny, Engadget will come in their pants about it, the Verge will give it 4/10 (based on the traditional -5 points for not being designed by Jony Ive), Curry's will put it on a big flashy stand and sell millions of them and life will go on.
I'd still like a ThinkPad X1 Carbon, that hasn't changed. I'd still reimage it immediately, that hasn't changed. Lenovo will make billions this years, that hasn't changed.
Sometimes I think we should really get the fuck over ourselves.
