Coreboot Is Set To Start Booting Laptops
Phoronix: Coreboot Is Set To Start Booting Laptops
This weekend in Brussels at FOSDEM along with many interesting X.Org discussions and laying out the plans for Wayland 1.0, the Coreboot project has an exciting announcement: showing off the first mainstream laptop with Coreboot support...
Michael, please, please, please, let there be high quality audio on this talk + slides.
I wonder if companies (like Microsoft) can strangle this effort with patents and/or with suggestions that it somehow encourages piracy of their OS, afaik MS is interested in UEFI which excludes other OSes (for now on ARM). I might be wrong but you probably get the basic idea.
Software patents are used only in couple of countries in the world, for now....
