BoFs: Coreboot - Moderated By Ronald G. Minnich, Google
Let's get together and talk about Coreboot. We'll talk about the new architectures (MIPS, ARM V8, ARM V7), show off new hardware running coreboot, and let people talk about what they're doing. We'll also present what is going on with integration with Linux, including the return of LinuxBIOS. We'll have several people from Google's Chromebook group there to talk about what's going on in that area.
