    It was only a matter of time before someone tried to do something about EUFI.

    $MS and their 'money sucking' technology should end. China's planning to migrate to Ubuntu should teach them a lesson about greed.

    I was hoping eventually someone would wake up and smell the coffee. Looks like someone has.

    This could be as entertaining as the Linspire/Microsoft altercation.

    Where have all the other open source players been until now? That's my only question, I guess.

    Great idea, bad execution. Microsoft is not responsible for Secure Boot. Intel is.

    Actually, thinking about it more, it's like Apple locking its software to its hardware except of course the other way around. Perfectly legal.

    Surely you jest. Intel doesn't even make operating systems. They added Secure Boot because MS is their long time partner and otherwise they don't care.

    Yeah, "its" is the key word here. Nobody cares about what Apple does with Apple products. Especially people who wouldn't touch their products even if those were free.

    MS is trying to vendor lock everyone else's x86 hardware though. Feel the difference.
