Dual Boot with Windows 8 and Linux is Not Possible ?

Dual boot with Windows and Linux 8 not possiblePersonally, I am very Shocked to know that Microsoft’s new Windows 8 Secure-boot technology does not allow dual boot with Linux. You should make it impossible that one Linux installed alongside an existing Windows 8. 

The parallel installation is usually possible with Windows 7 and its predecessors without problems for many Linux friends.

Microsoft has not commented on this rumor until now. Circulated the rumor, according to Microsoft expert on Mary-Jo Foley has a staff of Red Hat Linux company .

Microsoft has only mentioned some of the prerequisites for secure boot Windows 8 (along with UEFI). This includes, for example, that all firmware and software from a Certificate Authority (CA) is certified and used a client version of Windows 8.
