A couple nights ago I was looking over the UEFI spec, and I realized it shouldn't be too hard to write UEFI applications in Rust. It turns out, you can, and here I will tell you how.

Language gets me giddy, but thank god lots of other people get giddy over stuff like this.

That is what EUFI sounds like to me, a way to introduce 'Secure Boot' which just leads to more secure DRM and more closed systems.

Will the PC be a walled garden like iOS ?

I hope not.
