A few interesting interviews with speakers at the upcoming FOSDEM 2007 have been published.
I especially recommend reading the interview with Ronald G. Minnich, the founder of the LinuxBIOS project.
Here are the questions he was asked:
- What's your goal for your talk at FOSDEM?
- We saw the mention on the LinuxBIOS website about one million devices shipped with LinuxBIOS. Could you tell us more about these devices?
- What kind of support have you received from chipset and motherboard manufacturers so far?
- Could LinuxBIOS theoretically replace all BIOSes, of are there certain limitations to be taken into account?
- Could you tell us a bit more about the BIOS side of the OLPC laptop?
- What exactly is the difference between "easy" hardware to write a BIOS for, and the "tough" hardware?
- What are your thoughts on the Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI)?
