My first impression from the BIOS open source project was an effort to
expand knowledge not to earn money!!

If any one wants to earn money he will find a technical job, will get
involved in deadlines of the project, will tolerate the pressure and stress
of a challenging and rewarding work.

I thought we were here to help each other to understand the details of the
science and technology involved and become ready to invent something new or
to become ready for the projects in the market.

Though spending money for this case seems contrary to the first purposes of
the project but money might be paid to responsible and eligible technical
people. Who you recommend and where are those?

I am ready to develop code for Coreboot but my knowledge is not enough and I
suspect the knowledge of many users of this mailing list to be enough for
