Google "People are, unsurprisingly, upset that Microsoft have imposed UEFI Secure Boot on the x86 market. A situation in which one company gets to determine which software will boot on systems by default is obviously open to abuse. What's more surprising is that many of the people who are upset about this are completely fine with encouraging people to buy Chromebooks. Out of the box, Chromebooks are even more locked down than Windows 8 machines." Good point.

Once you're at the point of breaching your warranty and fiddling with the hardware, many things become more tractable. I suspect you'd have no trouble in modifying the keys on a Windows RT device, for instance.

Why would it matter? The keys are in a well-defined format, and once you've replaced them you can run whatever you want.
