Anyone having doubts that Microsoft is still in control of the computer industry is wrong, in my opinion, so it's very likely going to be a tough road for Linux users when all those on the UEFI.org board bow to Microsoft, although a couple of the current members probably do so unwillingly. As noted previously, it will all work itself out in the end, one way or another, so I'm very much looking forward to seeing it unfold.

No you are right Jonathan . But the reason Microsoft is copping the blame is because they are trying to lock down PCs like Apple does by taking advantage of Secure boot. If Microsoft wants it own secure hardware with just Windows, it should organize agreements like Apple to have that hardware built and locked to Windows like the new Windows Surface (just a demo that they can do it).
I understand its all love and war, and trying to remove the competition, which is why Microsoft is taking this approach.
