Does this mean that,
if using Windows Signature,
and BIOS activate the network,
then Microsoft could
play with my linux?

I know that UEFI is about identity;
The first in the stack "owns" the stack.

But, could it be that
the BIOS designer,
-the non writable part of the BIOS-
is the real "owner" of the stack?
