    Don't these computers that come with webcams have there own software anyway? It's not like apple were there is no software besides what is provided.

    It would make sense if they integrated it into the OS if they planned to add that facial recognition login feature.

    I see the EU getting a lawsuit ready already.

    I think this will be a good idea, I don't mind at the moment becasue most computer come with some form of software but this will mean we all get the same and hopfully it will be of a higher quilty, some of the software I have seen is shocking.

    Ahaha I really like the phrasing here.

    "A user who goes by the name of PlainDickhead"
