How can the end-user documentation be improved?
Hey. Great that you're interested in this special task.
For me as a non-contributing user much trouble occurs when trying to
build anything beside SeaBIOS (Grub and FILO especially). Maybe a little
tutorial about building these payloads would be cool. Especially the
FILO docu is a bit thin. How do you configure it? What would be the main
advantages over GRUB? etc.
What advantages are you looking for in a system that has open source
(including init) firmware?
(Me - freedom, repair-ability and semi-obscure features like IOMMU
that actually work and can be easily fixed if they don't)
Personally I'm a great fan of technological efficiency in all my
devices. I hate unnecessary crap laying around. When learning about x86
I always hated the fact that there's so much useless old stuff, that
there's a BIOS and therefore some kind of second OS on a system while
you actually only need one. That's why I like coreboot: Start the main
board, give control to the OS and then be a nice firmware and go back to
your flash-rom ;)
I'm not as concerned about security and freedom as most of the other
people probably. Unnecessary madness like the Intel Management Engine
creeps me out a little bit, though.
