GNU, GPL, Open Source "The Free Software Foundation released a statement open for public signing, titled 'Stand up for your freedom to install free software'. The statement is a response to Microsoft's announcement that if computer makers wish to distribute machines with the Windows 8 compatibility logo, they must implement a system called 'Secure Boot'. The FSF statement warns against the danger that, if done wrong, this system would have to be called Restricted Boot, because it could make computers incapable of running anything but Windows." Signed.

Uhhh...dude? Didn't read your own link? They ported it to Windows embedded which has about as much to do with the Windows everyone uses as an X360. WinCE is frankly a dead OS anyway as most OEMs are looking at either WinPhone or Win 8 if they want Windows but for some reason don't want to use...well Windows.
