Frankly, I wish Microsoft would take these issues as seriously and disable cruft like this in the consumer OS's by default.

Yes, this would be great. However it would annoy their long-term buddy, Intel.

That said, if they really are planning their own line of chips, maybe they'll do it to cripple Intel kit and bolster sales of their own silicon. (Cynical, moi? Yep.)
