Probably, almost surely, most of the manufacturers never heard of Coreboot
or, if they did, don't know the current state of the project and if they can
use it or not.
I think that *pushing Coreboot as a plus for the enthusiast* would be
something to look into. Hardware enthusiasts are tweakers and, as such, like
to tweak, what better than offer them open-source code? It may not appeal to
all but it may for some. If manufacturers like the idea, than they'll
probably look into it.

I can try to talk to them, if someone has the time to talk to them

Best regards,
