coreboot has become a remarkable firmware project providing an alternative to royalty based legacy BIOS implementations. This has often been a Sisyphean challenge in a hardware market that keeps bringing hundreds and hundreds of mainboards every year. No developer can even attempt to keep up with all of these boards.
Without our sponsors, coreboot would not stand, where it stands today. Therefore we want to express our gratitude to all corporations who have helped us – and are still helping us – to achieve our goal of providing a better firmware. Thank you very much.
