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.

Our self-builds won't be able to get Windows 8 logo certification. That's it. No sane person would want it on their self-built rig anyway.

It's the OEMs who seem to think that Windows sticker is the most important feature of their products.
