Despite the best efforts of Fedora 
<https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Secureboot>, openSUSE 
and the Linux Foundation, booting Linux on UEFI Secure Boot Windows 8 
PCs continues to be a problem . The easiest way to avoid Windows 8 
lock-in is to disable UEFI Secure Boot from your system before it starts 
to boot. However, this option may not be available on all motherboard; 
isn't available at all on Windows RT devices 
such as the Surface; and is still troublesome even with Secure Boot 
disabled. So, it is that the struggle---and struggle it is---to create 
an easy to use, universal install and boot Secure Boot Linux installer 
continues on.

not to them to establish any rules respecting the rights of property; nor
will the constitution permit any prohibition of arms to the people..."
