Concerns have been raised about dual-boot configuration machines and the
ability to install Linux on new motherboards employing the UEFI Secure Boot
There was a very widely publicized case in the EU where Micro$oft was
prosecuted for illegally attempting to restrict competition through their
interdependent bundled software.
They paid a massive fine and had to make unbundled operating system software
available throughout the EU.
This new technology raises the same concerns and the OP is advising that the
appropriate EU official be notified ~now~ while it is still easy to fix
instead of after it is already deployed.
Any more questions?

account for less than 1% of the 30,000. There are three times as many
medical mistake deaths in the US than there are accidental gun deaths.
Perhaps we need safety locks on doctors and nurses?
