    I seriously laughed out loud on this part.

    Same here. I mean, Silverlight is pretty much discontinued, why require it to update the UEFI?

    And so it begins...

    And so it begins... UEFI is unleashed upon the world and the Linux Foundations is having issues with proprietary technologies from Microsoft. The fact the we need a "Microsoft UEFI Signing" process is really sad. One can only guess how much grief this will generate down the road. I'm pessimistic about this one...

    I'm not a SecureBoot expert, but doesn't this completely defeat what Microsoft officialy wants to achieve with secureboot?
    I.e.: A "hacker" could use that publicly available signed bootloader and use it to preload before Windows and make secureboot completely pointless?

    Just asking. Hope someone can clarify this.

    They treat their customers like shit at the OS level, follows that they would do it at the customer support level too. That's why I'm not amazed anyway.
