Mandatory driver signing even now does not prevent individual users from loading unsigned drivers. It's only mandatory for manufacturers. Users can disable it. So I think your "sky is falling" rhetoric is excessively hyperbolic.
Meanwhile iOS and OS X are, right now, today, more locked-down than any operating system Microsoft has ever released. Compare the experience of installing Linux on a Mac vs. a PC and tell me which one's easier.
It's really important to get facts straight and not let past biases get in the way. The truth is Microsoft is no longer the biggest threat to Linux today. Fighting the last war wastes resources and helps no one.
