+Behan Webster it's like the state of the union in the US, someone has to stay at an undisclosed location in case of catastrophe :)

I've now got all the ingredients for this as well as some fun magnets. I think at least one of the kids will enjoy this over the winter break.

Take slime play to a whole new level with this amazing magnetic slime. This recipe only takes five minutes to make and requires just a few materials, making it an easy way to WOW the kids! Make Your Own. Magnetic SLIME. Take slime play to a whole new level with amazing magnetic slime.

Because, clearly, there is no alternative, and the UEFI forum can innovate fine on its own, no need for competition or other ideas.

Me? I'm happy barebox exists and supports much of the same hardware U-Boot does. I think it keeps both of us from getting complacent. I'm even happy that tianocore is a thing. I just wish the rhetoric could be toned down sometimes.
 
Yesterday morning I discovered some U-Boot use on a few reference systems. By the afternoon, this was being addressed. If you ship U-Boot and not UEFI I will find you and I will force you to correct this.

Please report any additional sightings of U-Boot on ARMv8 servers to me offline.

There are still no acpi bindings for pmu so rhel is useless on arm64.

Dear Lazplus, are there any not annoying-to-technical-people Mobile providers in the US? I'm assuming it would be a "small" provider that buys access to one of the big networks anyhow.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have some coffee and emails to deal with...

If I may borrow a phrase for a moment, "Software runs Software, film at 11." People may be unaware of this but many firmwares support PXE booting. From there, many distributions support installing on the hardware it was booted from.
 
Installed Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server for ARM Development Preview onto 30 HPE Moonshot ProLiant m400 systems just now with a handful of commands:

1). First I typed "set node options boottype UEFI all" (in the chassis manage iLO interface, iLO also supports IPMI too).
2). Then I turned them all on and did a standard Kickstart installation using PXE just like any other UEFI system.

Every m400 running firmware since July (the latest service pack included, as well as any shipping systems) can trivially run Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server for ARM Development Preview, as well as any other Operating System conforming to the Server Base Boot Requirements (SBBR) from ARM.

Now is the time for everyone to follow the good example of companies like HPE by embracing common industry standards. If your Linux distribution isn't using UEFI and GRUB by default on ARMv8, you're living in the past. You owe your users a better experience, and you can fix that today by telling your Linux distribution to ship support for SBBR.

+Jon Masters I'm glad to know that:

1) U-Boot (and every other non-UEFI firmware) changes the interface used for starting something willy-nilly and for no useful reason.

2) Device trees, atags and U-Boot environment also change all the time, incompatibly, for no reason at all.

3) Given the actual mess involved in "reboot" on x86, abstracting that out so an OS can reboot reliably is quite clearly a best practices to follow, not an architectural mess.

Some days, and frankly, I think you looked at the ARM zoo, and took all the wrong lessons from where things do and do not work.

That last update is pretty awesome. Wonder if they can hit the stretch goal for Ep #3 with that? I'm going to jump up a level if it's looking close...

Hey +Google+, my reading on G+ has gone way the hell down with the new interface since it never tells me when I have new posts and reloading just shows me Pages and Communities posts way more than all of the new Public posts I'm looking for.
