Hardware, Embedded Systems "Some of my recent time has been devoted to making our boot media more Mac friendly, which has entailed rather a lot of rebooting. This would have been fine, if tedious, except that some number of boots would fall over with either a clearly impossible kernel panic or userspace segfaulting in places that made no sense. Something was clearly wrong. Crashes that shouldn't happen are generally an indication of memory corruption. The question is how that corruption is being triggered. Hunting that down wasn't terribly easy." Very interesting - and, unlike what the title suggest, not particularly related to the secure boot stuff.

Maybe you should stick to running Mac OS X then, and simply run Windows and Linux in a VM (VirtualBox, Parallels etc).

I'm about to buy a MBP for the first time, and from all the information I read on the net, the above setup seems to be the safest (sane) choice. Saying that, I will probably try installing FreeBSD as a sole OS on my MBP t oo (simply for the ZFS support). ;)
