Bucky24 (1943328) writes "ZDNet's Ed Bott decided to contact major PC makers to find out the truth about Windows 8 SecureBoot.

Dell plans to have a BIOS switch to allow SecureBoot to be disabled, and HP assures us that they will allow consumers to make their own choice as to what operating system to run, though they have not given details as to how."
