I agree. I’d like to see more OEMs shipping Linux-centric models, not just Windows or Chrome or Android PCs, leaving Linux users to deal with installing their preferred OS, which is getting harder and harder with pre-OS security (Secure Boot, etc.) preventing customization. Windows PCs have ACPI tied to Windows OS, a Linux PC does not need those ACPI tables, and perhaps may even want some Linux-centric ACPI tables.
Last time I looked, most “Linux OEMs” — scoped to laptops, not servers — still shipped BIOS-based systems. I asked one large Linux vendor why they were still doing this, and they said that Secure Boot was great for sales for them, Linux users avoid it and prefer BIOS. This may be good for ease-of-configurability, but it is bad for security. If you’re going to keep using BIOS, at least consider using SeaBIOS.
OEMs, please take one decent laptop and desktop of your Windows line, and make a Linux-friend model. Dell used to do this. These years, with Secure Boot, it is much more needed.
