Windows After the walled garden coming to the desktop operating system world, we're currently witnessing another potential nail in the coffin of the relatively open world of desktop and laptop computing. Microsoft has revealed [.pptx] that as part of its Windows 8 logo program, OEMs must implement UEFI secure boot. This could potentially complicate the installation of other operating systems, like Windows 7, XP, and Linux.

We gotta fight for our freedom, cause if not we will lose it seems.. Gov. and the big companies would definitely want us with no other choice than their products and their ways of doing things..

Stallman is not as crazy as it seems I believe..

Thank you Thom for writing about these things.

I go for danger + freedom instead of safe slavery any day.
