      This is amazing.
      I just wish more COTS motherboards supported it. Like common AMD and Intel boards from Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, etc.

        This will nicely strengthen the Linux ecosystem.

          I agree with Hughes about the NDAs, they're annoying. Companies' legal teams be crazy.

              i'm sure neither you nor me will suffer from vendors not getting label. but according to blog dozens of vendors are trying to get label in panic.
              "designed for chromebooks" means device which you can use with chromebook.

                  Not just that, but since Hughes works for an organization under their own legal framework, he could not sign NDAs without his companies lawyers reviewing it. and then likely negotiating with the other company to come to acceptable terms. Except in the most trivial cases that can take months (and that is often an optimistic time-frame). There are cases where an NDA is a necessary part of the engagement, but no one should presume that that will not have different implications.

                    Good Guy Google.

                    They are using the good old iron fist to force the hardware manufacturers to stop acting like a herd of cats, like Microsoft did back in the day.

                      Yes ...(asus) I hate to manually boot into bios/uefi which is IMHO overloaded with OC-RPG-Kids design and maneuver through that crap and do everything manual since I know that it can be done just by one commandline
