This doesn't make the bug any less disastrous, but at least story titles will now shift from "Samsung laptops bricked by Linux" to "Samsung laptops bricked by buggy UEFI".

Regarding Windows, I recently discovered that you can actually migrate a Windows 8 install from MBR+BIOS to GPT+UEFI. It's not straightforward, but it's possible (using bootrec and bcdboot). I haven't tried the other way around or with Windows 7, but I think that should be doable as well.
