Linux It's sad that we need this, but alas - Matthew Garret has made a list of Linux distributions that boot on Windows 8 PCs with Secure Boot enabled. Tellingly enough, the list is short. Very short. Can someone hack this nonsense into oblivion please?

We 've been through this before with libdvdcss. A working workaround exists and yet distros are not using it as to make a "statement".

You do realize that libdvdcss is illegal in many parts of the world? That is one of the reasons for not including it, no sane Linux-distro maintainer wants to be found guilty of illegalities. There are workarounds, but alas, there's always this or that hoop to jump through.
