COREBOOT --
Coreboot is off to a great start of 2015 as already this year behind a new ThinkPad port and more Intel Broadwell work, there's now a port for a new HP board.

The newest motherboard supported by Coreboot is the HP ABM board that's used for network/server applications. The port was done by Dave Frodin at Sage Electronic Engineering, per this commit.

The HP ABM motherboard target is for headless appliances and in conjunction with this new Coreboot code was tested in being able to boot Ubuntu 12.10 and Fedora 19.
