Now that Linux (or BSD) friendly hardware is starting to appear, how far
are we from getting a fully open BIOS which, instead of being designed
for Windows and tolerant of Linux, is designed for Linux (and other open
source) and tolerant of Windows? 

Is anything being done with Adam + Adam's ADLO?

The latest news from the Etherboot front is a full on effort to add a
PXE environment to make replacement for the buggy proprietary NIC roms.
This is a big step towards open source something that hardware vendors
can use.
