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?

Vote with your money... don't buy Windows 8-based ARM PCs.

If they want to lock you out of the hardware you just bought, then lock them out of your possibilities for possible computer purchases.

The more Linux distributions that support this catastrophe, the more this shit will catch on, and then we'll *all* be fucked.
