GNU, GPL, Open Source "The GIGABYTE M57SLI-S4 is the first-ever desktop motherboard supported by a Free & Open Source BIOS, thanks to AMD engineer Yinghai Lu who released GPL-licensed code last month. This state-of-the-art motherboard is based on the NVIDIA nForce 570 SLI chipset and AMD's latest Socket AM2." I am not exactly a Free Software evangelist, but I am a strong proponent of open BIOS, for various reasons. Good thing, this.

Awesome! I wanna get me one! ;) LOL! I've always wanted to try a LinuxBIOS, because of the incredible boot speeds. This is truly a great moment in computer history as far as I'm concerned.
