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.

Since you made the assertion that this is somehow enforced by Microsoft then I suggest that you do it sweetheart. I'm afraid you don't get out of it like that. As you should well know motherboard manufacturers have done, do and will do the absolute bare minimum and less to cut costs. They are not going to implement a modifiable key system that virtually none of their users use.....and you think Microsoft will complain about that?

I'm sorry Garrett, but I'm smelling you out as a sell-out as Sam Varghese has already done.
