I plan to get a new laptop soon, and I'm looking for advice re window
The laptop I am interested in has not yet been extensively reviewed
(especially concerning compatibility with (x)ubuntu); normally I would
wait until I read more about it. But window 8 will come out at the end
of October and I don't know when OEM will start putting window 8 image
on new orders. I am aware that ubuntu has made a deal with the devil,
I mean microsoft, to allow ubuntu to be installed on OEM window 8 machines.
You're supposed to be able to disable that bios UEFI scheme. You've
lived without it for years, I assume. I wouldn't mourn it's loss nor
lose a minutes sleep over it. Just Say No!
