Key words, "would be able". What OEM ships this *today*? That's my point.

I'm not saying I love SecureBoot, but that ship has sailed. I also
wish Amiga hadn't futzed with their floppy drive stepper motors to
squeeze in more sectors per disk and made my floppies unreadable
without a trip to eBay, but that ship has sailed as well, so I pretty
have to find the best solution available for the situation at hand.
I would love for SecureBoot not to have happened, or to have happened
differently. If wishes were horses, even the poor would eat.
