Oh boy!

Seems like the UEFI people didn't a lot of thinking as in considering consequence of their decisions.

Not that it is very surprising given that they are a industry group, but still.

It is quite telling that the Linux Foundation didn't do more publicity on this outrage.

It inevitably leads to the conclusion that all the big corporate members have legal contracts with Microsoft that protects their Linux related business in some way that make relying on Microsoft for access to phyical machines unproblematic.

Anyone else, including smaller corporate members like Red Hat, are left to the wolves.

Good to keep in mind next time some LF,IBM, Intel, etc press release claims that any of those companies is "heavly supporting" Linux.

Never, ever forget Hanlon's razor.
