Description

When I boot my OpenRC LXDE netinstall ISO, I see that my device is not 'a Secure Boot platform'.
FSF says it should be called 'Restricted Boot' (https://www.fsf.org/campaigns/campaigns/secure-boot-vs-restricted-boot).

that blog article only says that it might be better called that - it is not on the list of confusing "words to avoid" - that is what the FSDG "confusion" clause refers to
