MIT’s One Laptop Per Child project (OLPC), i.e. the famous $100 laptop, is now planning to use LinuxBIOS! Check out the proposed hardware specs.

This is major : there are currently no laptops that can run LinuxBIOS. If this happens, there will be millions of them. Of course this will be just one very low-end design – but this might bring Turion64-based laptop LinuxBIOS support closer. I can’t wait!
