Linux After seven years of work, the LinuxBIOS project is on the brink of making a free BIOS a standard option for computers. Serious obstacles remain, including a lack of resources and resistance from some proprietary chipset manufacturers and OEMs, but the advantages of LinuxBIOS indicate that its availability to the average computer buyer may be only months away.

As a side note, I don't think LinuxBIOS is going to be able to compete with the new WinBIOS from Microsoft.

According to its going to be quite a LinuxBIOS killer.

However, as we all know, Linux isn't ready for the BIOS and won't be for sometime. Not unless they drop the ridiculous color scheme and add support for and make sure it only runs on one type of hardware.

First thaught that occured to me readying your reply is: f--k OFF!

sorry dude but you're nothing more but a troll and doesn't deserve any attention from me anymore.

You're worse then the GPL, windows and mac freaks.

Seriously read your first comment. It only pissed people off without a damn good reason. NO excuse possible.

Don't hate linux except the gpl trolls? Guess what:
"He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster"

:P
