This UEFI stuff scared the crap out of me.
My current pc having gotten to ~4.5 yrs of age,
i figured its probably a good time to get a new one, and
i probably ought to do it soon before
non UEFI mobos are no longer available.
I went to my local chinese pc store and requested a non UEFI mobo and
the rest of the stuff to build up a pc.
He looked at me weird til i explained that i run Linux exclusively.
Then he looked at me even weirder.
Not wanting to lose a sale, he agreed to research it and
got back to me with a non UEFI ASUS mobo and
an AMD quad core.
So far, its booting Ubu and running w/o a hickup.
Got to upgrade now, else
the next few years are going to be a horrendous mess,
til this gets ironed out and / or M$ bites the dust.
Preferably the latter!
