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.

Well, not really better.

More modern.

It would be better if the UEFI implementations didn't suck so bad: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V2aq5M3Q76U

Most of them are based on old versions of the same buggy implementation.

Kind of how a macbook pro isn't "better" than an Amiga 500, just more "modern"? I guess so.

Bill Shooter of Bul,

Kind of how windows 8 isn't "better" than an Amiga 500, just more "modern".

See what I did there? ;)
