Linux "Red Hat, Canonical and the Linux Foundation have laid out a set of recommendations for hardware vendors in hopes of preserving the ability to install Linux on Windows 8 machines. Windows 8 machines should ship in a setup mode giving users more control right off the bat, the groups argue." Group hug-cheer combo for Red Hat, Canonical, and the Linux Foundation please.

The linux group ought to support a measure to protect their OS from hacking. They ought to get on board with a similar method to firewall the OS from hacking. It would be a trivial matter to use the Window 8 scheme to their advantage.
