Windows The story about how secure boot for Windows 8, part of UEFI, will hinder the use of non-signed binaries and operating systems, like Linux, has registered at Redmond as well. The company posted about it on the Building Windows 8 blog - but didn't take any of the worries away. In fact, Red Hat's Matthew Garrett, who originally broke this story, has some more information - worst of which is that Red Hat has received confirmation from hardware vendors that some of them will not allow you to disable secure boot.

The art of reading properly what someone writes is being lost it seems.

On my eyes Apples is even worse than Microsoft, because of all the class actions it has been doing lately.

But if the world would come to state where it is either Apple or Microsoft, then putting some money on Apple at least would get the balance even in market share. That was my point.
