    I don't have hardware that is supported yet, my Dell XPS 13 is too old, but I think newer version can be updated trough fwupd. I hope other hardware vendors will follow... but sure, best would be to replace the UEFI crap completely with coreboot.

      Please also, which other "user-friendly" distros offer that level of integration? Not sure about Ubuntu (Software updater + Ubuntu/Gnome Software) but remember that Manjaro removes Gnome Software, haven't tried Tumbleweed with Gnome in a while and have no idea about others with different DEs.

      Afaik, gnome-software is the only UI for fwupd. I heard its working on Ubuntu, Debian, Arch and Fedora. Even though not every of these distributions offer it on a default installation, the users can install it easily afterwards.

        Arch has 0.9.7 version, still not updated to 1.0.0.

        I know it because I use it
