HARDWARE --
The Linux Vendor Firmware Service (LVFS) in conjunction with FWUPD for offering easy-to-deploy firmware updates on Linux continues its meteoric rise.

The past few years LVFS/FWUPD has enjoyed growing adoption by hardware vendors for providing firmware updates to Linux users from various peripherals to motherboard UEFI firmware updates. LVFS/FWUPD has been instrumental in establishing the firmware updating ecosystem on Linux.

Richard Hughes of Red Hat who leads the development effort shared some exciting numbers on its latest adoption milestones. Over the past thirty days, LVFS has served up more than two million firmware files to users. In addition to cracking 2 million firmware downloads in 30 days as a first, LVFS' other key metrics include over 3,000 firmware files being available, over 100 vendors making use of the service, and more than 50 different protocols being supported.

Kudos to all those involved with LVFS and improving the Linux hardware ecosystem at large.
