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.

Yeah, the article's title is misleading.

I actually think the title is plain wrong, it should be "Don't like Secure Boot? Buy a Chromebook." Since your choice is either secure boot and chromeos, or no secure boot and other oses. So really, if you don't like secure boot, chromebooks are good options.
