Linux "Red Hat, Canonical and the Linux Foundation have laid out a set of recommendations for hardware vendors in hopes of preserving the ability to install Linux on Windows 8 machines. Windows 8 machines should ship in a setup mode giving users more control right off the bat, the groups argue." Group hug-cheer combo for Red Hat, Canonical, and the Linux Foundation please.

I would like a citation for that because that seems to be a new piece of information. Will windows run normally without any restrictions if secure boot is disabled?


New information? Hardly - look at any of the previous posts on the subject, and you'll see them talking about the OEM branding issue. Because from day one, that's what it's been about - OEMs can't put that little Windows sticker on the case if the machine doesn't use secure-boot.
