Motorola Changing Their Stance on Locked Bootloaders?

Motorola has apologized over facebook for it's terse comments made to a youtube user relating to their locked bootloader and installing custom ROMs (

"We apologize for the feedback we provided regarding our bootloader policy. The response does not reflect the views of Motorola. We are working closely with our partners to offer a bootloader solution that will enable developers to use our devices as a development platform while still protecting our users' interests. More detailed information will follow as we get closer to availability."

This sounds to me like desperate attempt to quench the backlash they were receiving. Lets hope that they stick to this new ideology involving the development community, because the Motorola Atrix ( looks VERY nice.
