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?

The ability to disable secure boot is a requirement for the Windows 8 logo program. You may not ship a system with the Windows 8 logo unless the user can disable secure boot.

Has any one here actually disabled secure boot on a Windows 8 system? If so, they have can they describe their experiences and tell us what hoops they had to jump through.
