Hi all,

The Free Software Foundation started a campaign called “Stand up for your
freedom to install free software!” about Microsoft's plan to enforce “Secure
Boot” in the installations of Windows 8, which will prevent people from being
able to boot into GNU/Linux, one of the BSD variants, or other operating
systems. You can sign it here:
