I'm glad to see it from my quasi-paranoid perspective.  As Alex and I 
suggested in the thread on the Windows 8 secure boot, it may turn out 
that it is up to the OEM's whether Linux will be booted on future 
computers.  While the discussion on this topic has been vague and 
inconclusive, the worst case scenario may be  that in the future whether 
or not Linux will run (other than on VMWare type programs) might depend 
on the availability of computers built to run Linux.
