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.

Well first of all Apple sells both the hardware and the software, MS not.
MS produces the OS and force the hardware manufacturer to lock their products in order to be compliant with windows 8.
Also EFI on mac doesn't prevent you to install windows or linux
