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?

Will the BIOS/firmware check this ?

So will your PC stop booting in the future ?

Wow, this is a major fuckup and cause for serious concern. 15 year old working machines aren't all that rare - having this kind of time-bomb in them might very well prove to be a serious issue for businesses relying on UEFI secured systems.

(not to mention that the cloud services probably are all offline by then too ?)
