    Even assuming a 100% correct and sincere implementation of the TPM, specialized attacks could still get probes into it's inner workings and pull out keys, so now you ain't going to win if the U.S. of...

    1. TPM's can't control cpu execution. What they can do is attest or verify weather you're running what you think should be running. Stopping boot can only be done by something in the boot process...

    1. The actualy requirements are more that they are configured to accept certain key types, and that you (a physically present user) can manage keys (add or remove),

    2. And what verifies coreboot?...

    Ummm,,, no, just no. A TPM if present must be configured in a particular way. I don't see anything there that says a TPM must be used. Point to the specific place if you think I'm reading it wrong. ...

    Seriously, you're saying it didn't break anything, because you should just pre-emptively patch it? You had a common use case that worked before but didn't work after? How is that not broken?

    Yes, and it can even auto-unmount if you edit the sudoer's file.
    I think the bigger issue is a lot of programs depend on udev directly (chrome/chromium browser, libatasmart, guvcview, udisks,...

    D-bus activation from what I can tell moves security policy from policykit to dbus, seems just to be a different attack service.

    Socket activation doesn't seem to me to be particularly security...

    Systemd keeps configuration files as text. The advantage would be a program distributor only needs to write one of them instead of one for each distro. Standardization isn't bad so long as the...

    mdev - Not user-friendly but it works and is suitable to use in serious (though usually embedded) applications.

    consolekit + a DM. Yes, it's not actively maintained, but still works just fine.

    It seems fairly close in philosophy to D to me, seems like it could be suitable as far as I can tell.

    Interesting, though my thought here is that a microkernel should be small enough to embed on an ASIC. If the kernelspace is embedded in the hardware shouldn't these switches be avoided as well? Even...

    SystemD is just the 21st tool. Some standardation was useful, take LSB as a good example.

    Having truely modular tools give you choice, freedom, and flexibility. SystemD is making it a real pain...

    Anything with a needed runtime expecially a VM is a no-go as a serious general-purpose OS. Small .NET or jave kernel can be great to run as virtual machine for single tasks. Hoever they won't ever be...

    Seems like it, guess I'm behind the times.

    Might be able to revive it if anyone can round up a few thousand orders.

    I think the implementation is anything but standard, especially in BIOS every vendor does their own thing. . What they do it provide API's of last resort. UEFI in addition to providing runtime...

    I disagree Linux can overclock by probing and changing MSR's. It's not necessarily easy but it's a UI rather than driver limitation.

    SeaBIOS can boot from optical ATAPI optical drives

    No, Coreboot does not implement BIOS, UEFI, or it's own alternative.

    All coreboot aims to do it to get the hardware initialized and had off to something else. That something else might by a BIOS...

    Secure boot on x86 need to have an off switch to qualify for microsft windows 8 ready or OEM certification. Then you can use the UEFI loader program to jump right into a linux kernel, or windows, or...
