The side effect is that "A system that ships with only OEM and Microsoft keys will not boot a generic copy of Linux" (or other unsigned operating system for that matter). I think he is right to suggest we should be concerned."

First time I've heard this mentioned. This really is the successor to the BBC Micro!
FTA:
"Something we didn’t realize is that Raspberry Pi not only intend to make this PC work through a HDMI and DVI connection, they also want it plugged into old analog TVs just like kids managed with in the 80s. It also means you don’t need an up-to-date display in order to start playing with this device"

Hi,
I have loved all the years that I have been a developer and architect for Scientific Linux, but it is time for me to move on. I have accepted a job offer from Red Hat to work on their new openshift project. ( https://www.redhat.com/openshift/ )
My last day working for Fermilab, and on the Scientific Linux project will be September 2, 2011.

Thank you to everyone who has encouraged, thanked, and helped me over the past 8 years that I have worked on Scientific Linux. I have said it before, and I'll say it now, The Scientific Linux community is one of the best communities there is.

Troy
