They "just work" as long as you don't try to actually exercise one of the 
freedoms we stand for. Or even just install an out-of-tree kernel module 
such as the ones from RPM Fusion. I don't think this is something we should 
endorse, also because our endorsement may entice M$ to change away from the 
current situation ("Secure" Boot optional) which is certainly a compromise 
in their eyes.

It's as easy as setting an option in the firmware ("BIOS") setup, so I don't 
see why we can't just require it from everyone.
