You either put up with it or you don't mind because you don't want to do it anyways.
I am a strong believer of being able to do what you want with a device if you paid for it. This doesn't mean being able to do whatever you want with the OS. That's a license you get for use. But the hardware is yours and you should be able to load whatever software you want on it.
When manufacturers lock devices they dictate what you can do with your hardware. That's not right imo.
