... for now. Looks like a wooden horse to me. What will happen when most systems do boot with UEFI secure boot? Probably Windows will start to refuse to run certain applications and open certain files if booted insecure, meaning users will not do that. From there to removing the disable feature is just a little step. Don't you have the feeling of being spoon-fed?
