    coreboot developers focus on what coreboot developers have.

    I would say this is a huge move forward on the support side:

    HP COMPAQ-8200-ELITE-SFF-PC

    Is now supported.

    HP sold 10's of thousands of these in the corporate space, many can be found very cheaply in the refurb market and they support a wide range of Ivy Bridge CPU's.

    The HP BIOS on them was tied to corporate asset lifecycles (no tweaking) and therefore not flexible.

    I will have to rummage through my collection and see if I have one to revive and see what Coreboot has to offer.

    Well they are not recommended for new designs since quite some time: https://pcengines.ch/alix.htm
    Not recommended for new designs - please consider our apu2 platform instead.

    Probably because it is a pain to maintain and nobody is testing them anymore.

    I'm still procrastinating my much needed coreboot upgrade. There's GNU GRUB 2.04, dynamic CPU detection in libgfxinit, and probably some other minor things I haven't paid attention to. My excuse is the fact that I want to upgrade to a better paste on my CPU (it's toasty), and I don't want to spend cash on new paste right now.
