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?

I can't check what it does, I have no intention of buying such a device.

But the OS by default at least, would use the Internet to update the time every time it boots and even update the key database every so often.

If the manufacturer of an ARM device wants to be really sure that the time is correct it would use the onboard GPS device to update the time every so often.

So everytime the time gets updated it stops booting again.
