steam deck, right to repair
Valve has put out a new video showing a teardown of their new Steam Deck console. The thumbnail literally says "You shouldn't do any of this."

This is honestly a really great stance for a hardware manufacturer to take on the Right to Repair movement. WARN, don't restrict.
See, Apple? Is that so hard?
