We need to start talking seriously about this folks. UEFI as implemented on common consumer motherboards is not a security conspiracy. It is just a modern BIOS replacement. And not so modern really: you've been able to buy it for years.

It works with MBR, you don't need GPT. You don't need secure boot, you don't need windows 8. You don't even need an efi partition! You just need an efi folder. This tech is wonderful because it doesn't hide stuff. The efi folder is right there to look at.

Wubi is a disk image and some boot files and settings. So, how do we update our boot files and settings to work with UEFI? We're years behind windows on this, let's catch up.
