UEFI is the really ugly part of the latest moves by M$ to limit the

and no doubt remote control too. Effectively an officially sanctioned
rootkit.

It's only because the Linux Foundation has created a pubic key/certificate
that non M$ affiliated distributions will be able to boot on motherboards
that impose UEFI. Thankfully not all mobo manufacturers are dancing to M$
tune so there are a few non UEFI boards in production and if the bad press
for ms8 which IMO is on a level higher than vista continues then it should
be dead in the water.

The howls of pain emitting from the general internet about ms8 are
slightly entertaining.

At least we can be certain that for the next decade M$ will not be able to
squash both Apple and Google to regain their monopoly of the desktop and
given that Android is installed on the majority of mobile devices being
sold these days it shouldn't be long before all sound card manufacturers
provide ALSA drivers too unless they want to miss out on access to the
majority of global customers.
