I suppose that's a good way for the industry to go, even if I dislike the idea of technology becoming less owned by the user and more by the company. I lost all interest in mainstream consoles after Sony did a 180 on the PS3's Linux support, now if I want a console that I can mod I have to grab something from gen 7 and probably flash a ROM chip, or go with Nintendo (I'd love to have a Switch that can dual-boot between the stock OS and a full Linux environment, but I can't see the vulnerabilities lasting long enough)

EDIT: So I did some reading around and it turns out I can do exactly what I wanted to with a switch as long as I get one with a non-patched bootrom, and tether to my PC every time I boot Linux. Pretty nice!
