Re: Linux Foundation UEFI Secure Boot Key Delays Explained

said by OZO:

UEFI boot is new DRM protection for the proprietary OS, foisted into PC world by Microsoft Co.

Not quite. Secure boot is a security tool.
Microsoft has simply hoisted it through their certification program as a way for getting PC manufacturers to lock out competitors on the machines they sell.
A knife isn't a weapon until someone stabs someone with it.

I agree with you. Secure Boot is the main problem, that I see here, not the UEFI itself.
