Fwd: the ghost of UEFI and Micr0$0ft

For some reasons i am not able to get debian members response in my mailbox to my query posted on mailing list.

So i have written a brief post about UEFI, Canonical and Microsoft over here - http://harshad.wordpress.com/2012/06/22/the-ghost-of-uefi-and-micr00ft/

Canonical too has some plans for UEFI..experts can find the link in blog post.

Please post your views so that i can get to know what debian and FOSS policies are about UEFI, BIOS and Grub 2. Or you can directly mail me your thoughts.

i was reading this article -  http://mjg59.dreamwidth.org/12368.html 

It is written by someone related to redhat and it describes implementing UEFI secure boot in Fedora Core.

Lot of PC/laptop/tablets in 2012 and beyond will have UEFI instead of good old bios.

I want to know what Debian is planning to do and how it will thwart this potential threat to opensource software and now hardware architecture. 

Will Debian community fight against this evil step taken by computer makers ? 

All idea of opensource is not open unless we have access to open hardware architecture.
