My question is how the the UEFI issue might effect a users ability to use QEMU [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QEMU] and/or Oracle VirtualBox. Garrett says UEFI will "be moving to requiring signed kernel modules and locking down certain aspects of kernel functionality. The most obvious example is that it won't be possible to access PCI regions directly from userspace, which means all graphics cards will need kernel drivers.".
Does this "signing" mean Windws 8 will not allow any type of vitalization? Are we now heading into an era where software , again, is so limited that an abacus now looks hi-tech."
