Hardware, Embedded Systems "The UEFI secure boot mechanism has been the source of a great deal of concern in the free software community, and for good reason: it could easily be a mechanism by which we lose control over our own systems. Recently, Red Hat's Matthew Garrett described how the Fedora distribution planned to handle secure boot in the Fedora 18 release. That posting has inspired a great deal of concern and criticism, though, arguably, about the wrong things."

It is going to take a year or more before people know they should ask what type of Windows it is running so they can run their existing applications on it.

It is like Windows Vista, even "your grandmother" would ask if it was running Vista and wouldn't buy it if she couldn't get something else on it.

And now everybody loves Vista SE.

People might yet love Win9, after grumbling for some time about Win8, even if 9 will be mostly just Win8 SE / Metro 2.0.
