Secure Boot should be monitored by the Commission competition investigators, and not just on ARMs, but on any CPU.
It is far more nefarious and dangerous than crappy little IE, where M$ has always had an unbelievable cheek: they claimed that the browser was an integral part of the operating system... (Sure, and I have my trackpad magicglued to my right hand, so I can only accept work which requires trackpad usage or else I can only eat lasagne for trackpads...).
Agenda for the Commission's DG COMPET on SecureBoot:
1. act now to discourage SecureBoot via all available international fora, given that your investigation procedures are far too slow;
2. make it clear that SecureBoot will NOT have any impact on malware/security, only on M$ role in HW control;
3. tell your legal counsels, also not particularly known for their astounding speed, to prepare an advance legal advice on the breach of the competition rules which is bound to the current specs of SecureBoot;
4. start tackling Apple for IOS and iTunes: under cover of security they are just playing exactly as M$ [not for nothing the French competition authorities investigated iTunes].
