      Guys, I think you missed the most important news here:
      The work on HiDPI nears completion. [...] When this work is complete, you will be able to have smooth experience with multiple monitors of different resolutions and have it do the right thing. [Build together] a great experience that just works!
      And they should normally upstream all that (if the X devs accept the patch).

        only "neutralized", with the https://github.com/corna/me_cleaner
        as the broadwell ME does not have the HAP bit (a setting to actually disable the ME), so the me_cleaner script can only delete all modules from the ME. This means that the ME is still "running", but it won't be able to communicate with the outside world (as all modules to do that are removed).

        Having a hardware SPI flasher (to backup and restore the original UEFI even if the board does not boot anymore) is warmly recommended, also reading and understanding the me_cleaner wiki https://github.com/corna/me_cleaner/wiki is a good thing to do before attempting it.
