Windows The story about how secure boot for Windows 8, part of UEFI, will hinder the use of non-signed binaries and operating systems, like Linux, has registered at Redmond as well. The company posted about it on the Building Windows 8 blog - but didn't take any of the worries away. In fact, Red Hat's Matthew Garrett, who originally broke this story, has some more information - worst of which is that Red Hat has received confirmation from hardware vendors that some of them will not allow you to disable secure boot.

I'm sure there were completely naive people like you who said that Microsoft is just one OS company. They could never keep OSM's from using all other OS options. Right? Except that Microsoft did exactly that. And it took about 20 years before that started to change a bit. Still its almost impossible to find a PC without Windows in any store. Windows should be an option, not a must buy. Wake up and read history. Those who forget it are doomed to repeat it.
