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.

The fact I found so many with a simple google pretty much invalidated you argument.

If the user base is quite small, I would expect better support from them not generic equivalent. Also I surely would find it harder to find examples than simply putting in "system 76 examples, if they are such a small player.

BTW the top post was, he emailed them several times for a response and found none ... so the guy assumed they were going under (when they aren't) ... NOT GOOD.

A simple email saying that his support ticket was being looked into probably would have sufficed for the time being to let him know they were available.

Also a lot of the complaints is with their stuff supporting Linux itself ... which negates the reason for buying from them!!!
