according to distrowatch.com:
"FreeBSD developer Marshall Mickusick told IT Wire that the FreeBSD team would
probably follow in the footsteps of cutting-edge Linux distributions.
"Indeed we will likely take the Linux shim loader, put our own key in it, and
then ask Microsoft to sign it. Since Microsoft will have already vetted
the shim loader code, we hope that there will be little trouble getting them
to sign our version for us.""

I am just wondering why Linus Torvald is concerned about Microsoft's role ...

I hope FreeBSD (and other OSs) luminaries, devs and users will find a way not 
to harm themselves.
