Fedora Core "Fedora 18 will be released at around the same time as Windows 8, and as previously discussed all Windows 8 hardware will be shipping with secure boot enabled by default. [...] We've been working on a plan for dealing with this. It's not ideal, but of all the approaches we've examined we feel that this one offers the best balance between letting users install Fedora while still permitting user freedom." Wait for it... "Our first stage bootloader will be signed with a Microsoft key."

The problem is the number of owners that are complete morons.

I'd say that there needs to be a jumper inside the case for allowing addition of authorized secure boot certificates. Pain in the ass, but it keeps the idiots that will answer "yes" to everything out, while letting the people that know what they're doing in.
