A good idea to push the free BIOS project more.
I have a Android mobile, because it's the most open, except that it's not, it's locked down. There's been newer versions of the OS fixing bugs and wide open security issues, but they are not being pushed out to older phones. So you're supposed to buy a new phone or dare to brick the phone installing a non-official release?
This is what the manufacturers want, it's their plan of locking you into shift more of their stuff.
I would HATE, no, I would never buy in the first place, a computer that is locked down where you can only do what some software or hardware manufacturer "allows" you to do (Windows is going that way - and Win8 previews looks more of the same removing control from users).
We already have the locking of hardware nonsense with the BluRay format, and look how it's not taken off - so much so stand alone players have had to massively drop in price just to shift some stock. It's not working. People want to cut, copy, paste the media they legitimately paid for.
Shove their "Trusted Computer" model somewhere where the sun don't shine, because I don't trust a corporation, never have, never will.
