COREBOOT --
While you probably don't have a Siemens motherboard underneath your desk, the company has committed support for another one of their motherboards to Coreboot.

A Siemens engineer has added support for their MC TCU3 motherboard to upstream Coreboot. The Siemens board is derived from Intel's Bayley Bay reference board with Bay Trail processor while boasting USB 2.0 / USB 3.0, up to dual Ethernet, and LVDS. With this Coreboot support by Werner Zeh, Ubuntu 14.10 can boot on the system using SeaBIOS as should other Linux distributions too.

More details via this Git commit landing the functionality in Coreboot.
