Found this hilarious, and sickening, link on Slashdot:

http://blog.hansenpartnership.com/ad...-uefi-signing/

It's an article written by the poor guy who is trying to get the Linux Foundation's pre-bootloader signed by Microsoft, so we all can install Linux on Microsoft-approved hardware (without disabling UEFI secure boot manually). Describes all the steps he had to go through, compromises he had to make, and agreements he had to sign in the process....
