    The "infinite loop" just got a new meaning...

    Just think about how many virii writers who'll target any EFI software written by MS... And with their track-record for security holes, chances are we'll see plenty of boxes stuck in a reboot loop...

    Perhaps we should wait to see what even comes about from EFI before blaming Microsoft for having security problems with it.

    I'd like to see a basic OS built into the hardware, so that you can do some basic maintenance if your OS won't load. That could be installed on eeprom and should be upgradable. The functionality of DOS would suffice, but with upgradable support for various filesystems perhaps.

    That built in OS is a nice idea, you could then use a jumper to restore default settings when nothing else works :D
