Hardware, Embedded Systems A big issue right now in the world of operating systems - especially Linux - is Microsoft's requirement that all Windows 8 machines ship with UEFI's secure boot enabled, with no requirement that OEMs implement it so users can turn it off. This has caused some concern in the Linux world, and considering Microsoft's past and current business practices and the incompetence of OEMs, that's not unwarranted. CNet's Ed Bott decided to pose the issue to OEMs. Dell stated is has plans to include the option to turn secure boot off, while HP was a bit more vague about the issue.

How about you stop trolling and read the thread carefully?

See: http://www.osnews.com/permalink?495695
Spend some time reading documents linked there, and come back to discuss it after that.

Err trolling apparently is a well reasoned arguement :-| ...

No I am not going to read a thread on OSNews as evidence ... since most of it is misinformation from guys likes you.

Links to source material that aren't from biased sources or GTFO.

Since you aren't going to read it - stop asking questions. And discussion is pointless with those who are lazy to research the issue first.
