LinuxBoot Joins The Open-Source Firmware Foundation
The Open-Source Firmware Foundation (OSFF) was established as a non-profit legal entity to help promote open-source firmware in the industry and provide information to corporations and individuals on open-source firmware usage, training, events, and other tasks. As part of the OSFF has also been the call on Intel to be more open with their FSP (Firmware Support Package).
This weekend the Open-Source Firmware Foundation announced that the LinuxBoot project has joined this umbrella organization. LinuxBoot, of course, being the effort working to have a Linux kernel based implementation replace much of UEFI's Driver Execution Environment. LinuxBoot can then move on to kexec'ing an actual Linux install or going on to booting another supported operating system. If not familiar with LinuxBoot, visit LinuxBoot.org.
LinuxBoot is now the latest project represented by the OSFF, which you can learn more about at opensourcefirmware.foundation.
