I have never, ever, ever seen a server that was dual-boot outside of a
lab.

If Windows isn't involved, UEFI's Secure Boot can and should be disabled.

Like IBM-Red Hat, IBM-SUSE, Dell-Canonical, etc.? This is a case that
actually matters, and for Attachmate/SUSE not to have a solution when
Red Hat and Canonical do is a serious competitive disadvantage!

Only for those who believe that Secure Boot being enabled for anything
other than Microsoft's Windows logo program provides any sort of
significant advantage.

If Windows isn't involved on the hardware, then disable Secure Boot and
go on with life.
