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.

I'm really interested in seeing this ported to other main-stream desktop products. Just the faster boot times would be great. I just hope that it will support all the nice features on the ASUS boards, such as jumper-free FSB and multiplier settings.
