Google In the announcement of the new Chromebook and Chromebox, I found this interesting tidbit: "And support for hardware-accelerated graphics, a built-from-scratch multi-touch trackpad and an open-source firmware stack provide a much faster and more responsive computing experience." It's the open source firmware stack that interests me. Does anybody know how extensive this is?

Open^H^H^H^HFree BIOS = more choices for Richard Stallman, if/when his Lemote ( http://richard.stallman.usesthis.com/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lemote ) netbook dies.

Of course, I fully expect him to wipe out Chrome OS (however "nice" it seems to be becoming) in disgust ;)
