Hardware, Embedded Systems "The UEFI secure boot mechanism has been the source of a great deal of concern in the free software community, and for good reason: it could easily be a mechanism by which we lose control over our own systems. Recently, Red Hat's Matthew Garrett described how the Fedora distribution planned to handle secure boot in the Fedora 18 release. That posting has inspired a great deal of concern and criticism, though, arguably, about the wrong things."

Except secure boot doesn't solve any real security problem. It's obviously just a move by MS to stifle current and future competition.

MS and other companies do pay real people to have real jobs and have real lives.


WHY WON"T SOMEONE THINK OF THE CHILDREN...errr...JOBS?!?!
