Submission + - ZDNet and UEFI Secure Boot FUD (zdnet.com)

headkase writes: There is an article countering the FSF's Secure Boot petition over on ZDNet. That article seems to paint Linux users with a broad brush. I don't think that many Linux users are against Secure Boot in itself. Rather we would just like it to be a mandatory part of the UEFI standard that you have the choice to turn it off.

Of course, if you don't wish to ever install Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, or yes, any version of Linux, BSD, or Hackin'Tosh then this is not an issue for you. The question simply is: do you presume to actually own the computer you bought?
