"Thank you" intel for gifting us UEFI. Now use a bad template and make it even worse by giving it to vendors who mess it up even more. Still, only important is to have animations of fans spinning in the "BIOS"setup or even have a 3D-"BIOS"-Setup screen. Oh wow.
I so want back 80x25 text res. The best thing ever for doing jobs like that. Provide a little text-menu, maybe even in 16 colours, give it a good overview over the options and then let the user configure his/her hardware for startup. Save me the spinning fan animations. (Especially on my passively cooled systems )
On another note, well, AMD supports coreboot. Think about it. (Yes, I know that doesn't help a flaky uefi-implementation that comes shipping as firmware on a preassembled notebook but still)
Stop TCPA, stupid software patents and corrupt politicians!
