  • Windows8 "Secure Boot" UEFI 2.3.1 ban Linux and all other Opensource-OS:

    http://www.heise.de/newsticker/meldu...1-1334957.html

    "Aus der Linux-Community wurde schon angemerkt, dass es für freie Betriebssysteme schwierig sein könnte, signierte Bootloader zu erzeugen."

    quick translate: "linux experts in the community point out that no one will get an key to signing a free boot loader for this system"

    HELL Microsoft is truely the most evil anti FREE and Anti Open company..

    Right in this moment i wish all microsoft employees and company owner would die a painful death.

    damn.. i hate this company.

    I think the translation is bad. You translate "könnte"→"will" which makes the entire thing sound drastically worse.

        Well... I don´t see any change in their attitude.
        Who the hell needs windows anyway?
        I love them more and more with each version, with each step. Each their step is proof what pieces of *cake* they are.

          I don't think this is a concern about Windows, but rather about hardware vendors shipping with secure boot enabled and no way to disable it, so that *only* a digitally signed bootloader (eg the one in the pre-installed OS) could be loaded and run. The h-online article contains a link to an lwn article with more info :

          Don't think anyone is suggesting that this *will* happen, only that it *could* happen.

                Why would I want to buy a motherboard that can only run Windows?

                  Remember winmodem? Exactly same reason - uneducated. But there is suprise factor: learning.
                  People will learn about it at some time and,depending upon their preference, either hate MS more or will consider this stupid.
