Legal "The European Commission has fined seven international groups of companies a total of EUR 1,470,515,000 for participating in either one or both of two distinct cartels in the sector of cathode ray tubes. For almost ten years, between 1996 and 2006, these companies fixed prices, shared markets, allocated customers between themselves and restricted their output. One cartel concerned colour picture tubes used for televisions and the other one colour display tubes used in computer monitors. The cartels operated worldwide. The infringements found by the Commission therefore cover the entire European Economic Area. Chunghwa, LG Electronics, Philips and Samsung SDI participated in both cartels, while Panasonic, Toshiba, MTPD (currently a Panasonic subsidiary) and Technicolor (formerly Thomson) participated only in the cartel for television tubes." The EU can do good things.

You know what's horrible? For about a minute, I missed the mock tag and considered this to be a serious comment.

Says something about the current state of UEFI discussions on OSnews, if "discussions" is still the proper term ;)

Oh hell, I missed it too my first read and voted him down for it. Sarcastic comments are hard to detect when others say the same thing without sarcasm.

Maybe "unnamed" is just taking sarcasm to the literal extreme.
