Re: Secure Boot Breaks Kexec, Hibernate Support On Linux

said by chrisretusn:

All the more reason why if I have to buy a board with it, I will make sure I can disable it. who needs it anyway. I certainly don't needed.

The same is here. I just don't understand why I'd consciously want to lock my computer to one OS. It's like asking to lock cell phone to one provider and not allow to use it with others. I could understand why provider wants it. But me??? Nevertheless, there will always be some folks, who may justify even that (see this thread)....

This whole secure boot thing probably started when an IT guy trying to look cool told an Exec at his company "Hey watch this!" and booted a Knoppix CD or thumbdrive on one of the corporate PCs in front of him.
