The Microsoft Surface Pro can run Linux
It became known of it during session of questions from Reddit users in the address of the Panagia valana Panos (Panos Panay), who holds the post of corporate Vice President at Microsoft and works with the Surface Pro Engineering team.
One Reddit user asked about the Surface Pro along the following lines: «if Unlocked in your bootloader and if I can will I be able to do with my device whatever you want?». What Panagia valana said: «Like other Windows 8 devices, you can access BIOS settings and turn off secure boot, enabling you to boot other operating systems».
Thus, the boot loader in devices with Win RT and Windows Phone are locked, but already knew. But tablets with Windows 8 will please their owners just like any other machine with Windows 8, so you can easily disable secure boot and any time to load Ubuntu.
