Submission + - Ubuntu Secure Boot Is Worse Than Windows Secure Boot? (muktware.com)

sfcrazy writes: Canonical has given recommendations for ODMs planning Ubuntu pre-installed PCs. Their solution seems a selfish one compared to Fedora's. The significant difference between the Ubuntu approach and the Microsoft approach is that there's no indication that Canonical will be offering any kind of signing service. A system carrying only the Ubuntu signing key will conform to these requirements and may be certified by Canonical, but will not boot any OS other than Ubuntu unless the user disables secure boot or imports their own key database. That is, a certified Ubuntu system may be more locked down than a certified Windows 8 system.
