Windows "According to an inside source, a session was held at Microsoft's recent TechReady15 conference in which all the launch details were laid out. If things go according to the plan detailed then, the Surface for Windows RT tablet will be launching October 26th - no surprise there - at a compelling price of $199." My wallet just squealed in pure bliss.

Thx to MS franken-SecureBoot, you will not be able.

Accept preloaded stuff or get lost.

PS The true Secure Boot allows for disabling it. MS goeas against this standard, and force every OEM to disable such functionality. And we all know how likely MS is to add keys for Linux Distros or Android.

It can not boot Linux, but I'm sure you can triple boot iOS, Android and Linux on iPad 3, so go buy that.

Considering it hasn't even been released yet, maybe you should refrain from making that claim. Wait until it's available and then see what workarounds turn up.
