Intel to open-source next-gen BIOS replacement
Intel will release
the "Foundation code" of its next-gen BIOS replacement under the open source Common Public License
. DeviceForge has the scoop:
Intel says its firmware Foundation code, a result of a project codenamed Tiano, "provides that the successor to the BIOS will be based on up-to-date software technology." The Foundation code is designed to be extended with new features and services, such as improved platform manageability, serviceability, and administrative interfaces which are too complex to implement in the old BIOS environment, according to Intel.
