Secure boot is really scary from a software freedom standpoint

@Alonealastalovedalongthe I like the idea in theory. The practice and execution leave a lot to be desired though

@matt yeah, but Microsoft is not evil, it's even part of the Linux Foundation… #OhWait

@matt or you put your own key in the chain of trust and sign kernels/boot loaders that way?

I disagree. Actually, in order to get a "Windows Ready" certification for a device, Microsoft demands that SecureBoot keys are exchangable. Its just that most devices are shipped with Microsoft keys by default. SecureBoot is well supported by Linux.
