    Asus has usually been pretty good with Linux support. I've bought a lot of their hardware over the years for that very reason.

    The only vendors that seem to be using LVFS for real are Lenovo and Dell. Most accounts are "test accounts," even from open-source champions like System76.

    Seems like a good step forward. I hope they will not loose all the settings then and that they allow the user to downgrade in case of instabilities and lost functionalities. My Asus Prime X370 Pro mainboard doesn't keep the settings and you have to adjust plenty of settings after the UEFI upgrade manually.

    I case of my MSI MPG X570 I've noticed plenty of system crashes after the last upgrade to the new AGESA and I had to downgrade to the old release. Not sure if Asus allows an easy downgrade on all of the mainboards.
