OSNews, Generic OSes With computers now shipping with UEFI Secure Boot enabled, users of any OS other than Windows 8 will want to know how to circumvent it. Jesse Smith of DistroWatch tells how he did it here. The Linux Foundation describes its approach here. If you want to boot an OS other than Windows 8, you'll want to figure this out before you buy that new computer.

lucas_maximus,

"As I said, get Dell Latitudes or Lenovos (Thinkpad) with Intel chipsets and you are usually okay."

Dells website shows some laptops are compatible with Ubuntu, but it forces me to buy a version of windows, which is part of the problem Bill_Shooter_of_Bul and I were talking about.


They don't use the license, it is discounted to fuck, so I have no idea why people care. I run fedora on my Dell D430 (it is old yeah, but unbreakable it seems).
