  1. Ironically it means that RedHat has paid a premium so that if you use Fedora, you are less likely to be troubled by secure boot woes. Not so for other distros. If you are in the market or will be soon, probably not a bad idea to shop now before secure boot is more widespread. I am skeptical that secure boot will withstand legal scrutiny as I think a pretty strong constraint of trade case could be built against it, at least requiring it to the exclusion of other consumer options like Ubuntu, Mint, etc.

  2. I would think so too, but don’t have a high confidence in legal decisions around this sort of issue these days (although there have been SOME decisions I find hope in).
