Did you even read the article?
Where is this "dumbing down" you are talking of? It's just taking away some features that are not welcome on a public terminal which should be used for webbrowsing. If YOU have no use for it, you are obviously not the intended target audience.

And about the "annoying" part:
Did you ever use a properly configured public terminal? Oviously not. You could be glad to be allowed to move the mouse. (Okay, that was a bit exaggerated, but you get the idea)
