Re: Good design my a***
Why?? I'll rephrase that. No I won't. Why?? The laptop is useless without wifi!
Ever tried to use a corporate laptop that tries to contact DC and bunch of other services, before you have had chance to login to VPN to make them available?
Being able to turn wifi off means windows (no, linux is often not an option on corporate machines) will complete login/resume from sleep in few seconds instead of spending several minutes trying to connect somewhere being utterly unresponsive until it finally gives up.
Just because you have no need for it doesn't mean others might not find it very useful or even necessary.
