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.

Summary of your post

"I think Microsoft is the number of the beast ... Bill Gates is Satan"

"There is no proof that something won't happen ... so I consider it a possibility"

However ...

The logic you are using is similar to saying "You cannot disprove god .. therefore god exists".

Do me a favour and get a clue.
