    @edwardtorvalds I disagree with that advice, non-LTS are supported. – Panther Nov 17 '14 at 14:56
  • Secure boot is enabled or disabled in your BIOS. You can boot with or without it enabled, your choice. You need to disable secure boot with proprietary , non signed drivers such as nvidia and ati (last I looked) – Panther Nov 17 '14 at 14:57
  • is it safe to boot in insecure mode – user299731 Nov 17 '14 at 15:14
  • what about the performance, i am getting a slower performance in it. – user299731 Nov 17 '14 at 15:17
  • safe mode should not directly affect performance, the only possible effect would be open vs closed source driver. secure boot offers additional security by confirming your drivers are signed, and if the signature is off or unsigned, it will not boot. With that said, it adds more to Windows then linux as the linux drivers are not all signed and linux security is different from windows. – Panther Nov 17 '14 at 15:51
