Linux "At long last, it looks like there is an adequate solution to the Active State Power Management (ASPM) problem in the Linux kernel , a.k.a. the well-known and wide-spread power regression in the Linux 2.6.38 kernel, which has been causing many laptops to go through significantly more power than they should. This is not another workaround, but rather a behavioral change in the kernel to better decide when the PCI Express ASPM support should be toggled."

AMD has already announced their future boards will be built around coreboot which is FOSS.


That is not how I would put it. As I understand it they will deliver the people and documentation necessary so that coreboot can be used on all their boards.
