    ezst036 key question is how to convince them? From my experience it is close to impossible, the only way you can do that is to create so strong open-source firmware environment that they cannot ignore benefits of it. What essentially means open-source firmware ecosystem have to provide significant business value with minimal risk. For now risk is too high and that's why we have no mainstream hardware with coreboot out-of-the-box. On the other side I think it may be hard to have coreboot out-of-the-box big business needs someone to call and ask to solve the problems. This is not something you get from open-source community, but from companies operating in this community (hence Linux and Red Hat).
