It is obviously off topic, and mostly incoherent rambling about lots of
different topics.  Hard to be on topic when there is no topic.

As for Tails (which I had never heard of before) and UEIF, they have
a page here https://tails.boum.org/news/test_UEFI/index.en.html from
May asking people to test that the UEFI support didn't break non UEFI
machines.  Perhaps no one bothered.
