Windows 8 secure boot on Arm devices

With CES having just finished up, one of the big items I read about were all the new tablets that would be available this year.  While Ultrabooks may have seem to get the bigger push this year, we are still going to see a ton of new tablets hitting the market.  In a previous podcast we discussed how Microsoft could possibly stop other OS’es being installed on upcoming Windows 8 tablets.   I found a very good article over on Extremetech.com which talks about Microsoft potentially stopping anyone from being able to install a different OS on a Windows 8 tablet running ont he ARM architecture.
