Microsoft is demanding that systems with the "Designed for Windows 8" badge include a UEFI firmware feature called "Secure Boot" that will only boot software that has been signed with a particular cryptographic certificate. Although Microsoft's stipulations require also that x86/x64 systems provide an option to disable Secure Boot, Linux users are concerned that this will make it harder for them to boot non-Microsoft operating systems.
