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."

I failed to see how the proposed solution is somewhat unfitting. He asked for a simple jump or switch on motherboards, nothing more. I think it is the best and simplest solution I ever heard. It will not lessen what Red Hat can do or claim for their systems and provides a fair level playing field for all others involved on linux/*BSD, or whatever camps.
