Legacy PC BIOS dead in three years?

thinq has a story about MSI claiming they will start putting UEFI into their BIOS ROMs soon. Finally.

Hopefully this will improve their reliability and upgrade procedure on the way.

Personally I’m pretty much BIOS-less since some time, as I got myself Apple’s PowerPC hardware back in the days just for the PowerPC and OpenFirmware part of of it and still run my Linux on the machines. Other hardware, such as the SPARCs near me do not have such defect basic software either, and Apple’s Intel Macs used EFI right from the start, …

However, one should also note that some vendors (Sony and other) already ship machines with UEFI bits.
