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."

In the same vein you can use Litestep, LDE(X), bbLean, Emerge Desktop on "the other OSes you're probably used to" - or just start using the Powershell. So, Explorer isn't forced on you.

Except, that's not really the case in ~corporate scenarios, where some fairly usual set of defaults does tend to be forced on users. Also when the OS is Red Hat (or its derivatives), which likely will force Gnome 3.
