Richard Stallman on the latest anti-competitive move of Microsoft, et. al.

Richard Stallman speaks out on Microsoft's latest effort to destroy Linux as an alternative operating system. See "TechBytes Episode 69: Richard Stallman on Restricted Boot (UEFI), Coreboot, GRUB, and Boot Freedom." The question is, who will take them to court over this latest move, how long will the case be tied up while "SecureBoot" locks out technology alternatives, and what are the chances of eventual legal success?

This is not just about Windows vs. Linux, folks. This is ultimately about government control of your computer. And it's only one of countless issues in that domain.
