I can't now.  Jay would certainly engage fruitfully in a discussion
based on the parameters described.  I will say: A political campaign
that rebukes Microsoft. A stand that does not accommodate Microsoft
before we see a technical path forward and a realistic future for free
software.  Technically, I'll say only this for now: a UEFI that tells
the truth to the user and makes things non-scary, on trustworthy
hardware -- plus all the infrastructure needed to render the use of
these systems viable for free software.

But Jay can address these things better than I.
