Don't let the smoke, mirros, dogs, ponnies, ballons, and sweet fruity drinks con you people! This is nothing about "security" its about competition lockout! Period.

You're on a roll this morning.

I agree this isn't much about real security, manipulating competition is far more important to the players involved who don't have much of a history of actually competing against each other.

This pandering to the secure boot settings ensures one thing too for sure, Microsoft will retain a large number of installations due to dual boot on oem machines and it's possibly what this whole psych game is about.

The reality of it is that it doesn't affect a majority slice of the overall Linux pie, just one of the more noisy pieces with a big corporate megaphone.

Don't matter how much they are running their mouthpice, they don't have much positive "cred" with me. And with this I would serious start to question their involvement in things like the kernel and look at any code contribution as tainted and possible security risk.

This thing stinks more than a landfill on a 102 degree August day!
