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.

I'm paid by Nebula. Microsoft are, as far as I know, not amongst our investors. As for squirming - you're the one who claimed that nobody would implement key management on consumer boards. Why won't you take me up on this bet?
