So "mandating" this isn't really going to change anything.
It certainly will:
- It will prevent Microsoft from changing the rules if it thinks it can.
- It will punish system vendors who "accidentally" ship a "buggy" BIOS that doesn't permit users to supply their own keys or turn off Secure Boot.
Microsoft currently sets the rules, but please tell me what the penalty is for "accidentally" selling a system that only boots Windows?
