Google "People are, unsurprisingly, upset that Microsoft have imposed UEFI Secure Boot on the x86 market. A situation in which one company gets to determine which software will boot on systems by default is obviously open to abuse. What's more surprising is that many of the people who are upset about this are completely fine with encouraging people to buy Chromebooks. Out of the box, Chromebooks are even more locked down than Windows 8 machines." Good point.

So you didn't read the article.

Yeah, the article's title is misleading. So people only reading the title will get the wrong impression that this is about disabling secure boot, when it's actually the opposite.
