Re: When do we see an Windows phone with Android?
The hysteria about Secure Boot was massively overblown and a lot of people fell victim to FUD about it.
Quite. Secure Boot is a bit of a PITA, but all well-implemented security measures have to be if they're not to be trivial to circumvent.
The biggest "problem" with it is that the UEFI foundation itself did not (was not empowered to) set up a vendor-neutral Certification Authority to issue boot key certificates ... so when boards started to ship with Secure Boot enabled the only keys available for them to ship with were Microsoft's keys. Fortunately Microsoft have been quite decent about signing others' code and in mandating that Secure Boot must be able to be disabled (at least on x86).
