Should Linux Users be Worried About 'Secure Boot'?
With the release date looming for Windows 8, I'm beginning to get a little concerned about what UEFI's "Secure Boot" is going to mean for Linux users. Up to this point, I haven't paid too much to it, so as to avoid spontaneously sucker-punching my monitor, but soon enough, ignoring it might not be an option. So what exactly is it going to entail for Linux users? Are we going to reach a point where we have to decide between using either Windows or Linux on one PC?
