I'm with you on the threat to Linux from UEFI firmware only accepting signed bootloaders, however this line is a bit of a leap for me:

"Microsoft requires that machines conforming to the Windows 8 logo program [...] ship with secure boot enabled"

So out of interest, how did you tie the Win 8 secure boot support/requirement to the logo program? Thanks.
