The new Secure Boot of Windows 8 allows you to install Linux

In recent post we have spoken the announcement by Microsoft to use on PCs Windows 8 Certified Certificates must respect the UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) so having to replace the BIOS with a special boot loader which will not allow us to install Linux.

The news has been very angry users Linux finding it impossible to be able to install the operating system so loved on a new PC with Windows 8.

Apparently it does seem rather Linux can be installed even if PC certified Windows 8 Certified.

In fact, if our PC will have the new system Secure Boot of Windows 8 we can still unlock it to be able to install our Linux Operating System knowing that if we use Windows risk undermining the stability of the system.

In fact, as indicated by many users Microsoft could hardly make a system limiting the use only of the operating system since it most likely would have been subject to "censorship" by the antitrust commission.

Linux then we can even install it on any PC even better, whether alone or with other Linux distributions.
