Linux It's sad that we need this, but alas - Matthew Garret has made a list of Linux distributions that boot on Windows 8 PCs with Secure Boot enabled. Tellingly enough, the list is short. Very short. Can someone hack this nonsense into oblivion please?

This is a real problem. ARM devices are often sold with locked bootloaders, and the ones that ship unlocked don't have open-spec hardware which makes writing drivers difficult.
