http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Quote: One of the worst parts about Windows 8 isn't even in the software! The "logo requirements" for Windows 8 require all new machines to ship with a mis-feature called "SecureBoot". SecureBoot prevents any operating system that hasn't been graciously blessed by Microsoft from booting. This means that by default no truly open Linux distributions or other third party operating systems may boot on any new PC. And don't start in on that "oh, it can be disabled" crap. Think about it, how well will that really work in practice? (HowTos)
