Ahem. Red Hat.
If you want to be disappointed with Red Hat for making it possible to install Linux on a machine without screwing with the firmware settings, that's your choice. If you want to be disappointed with at Red Hat for giving you the tools to take advantage of the additional security this can give you, that's your choice. If you want to disappointed with Red Hat for doing all this in a way that does not place any Linux vendor in a privileged position, that's your choice.
Me, though? I can think of other entities I'd be upset with first.
(Yes I'm a Red Hat employee. My opinions are my own.)
