    The Linux Foundation's open source workaround for Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) Secure Boot has shipped, and while it's not necessarily the easiest way to boot Linux on UEFI-enabled PCs, its authors claim it should now work with any bootloader and any distribution. The Linux community was first alerted to potential problems with Secure Boot in 2011, when computer boffins warned that the digital signing restrictions in UEFI could lock Linux out of PCs that shipped with Windows installed and the firmware security features enabled.
