+ - Windows 10 to make the Secure Boot alt-OS lock out a reality->

Submitted by walterbyrd
walterbyrd (182728) writes "At its WinHEC hardware conference in Shenzhen, China, Microsoft talked about the hardware requirements for Windows 10. The precise final specs are not available yet, so all this is somewhat subject to change, but right now, Microsoft says that the switch to allow Secure Boot to be turned off is now optional. Hardware can be Designed for Windows 10 and can offer no way to opt out of the Secure Boot lock down."

I agree: systemd has damaged Linux far worse than scox.

IMO: both systemd, and scox, stem from the same idea: companies like Linux being free, but dislike not being able to own Linux.

IMO: Red Hat, the company behind systemd, is much smarter, and is much more likely to successfully steal Linux.
