Yes it is, I despise the OEM's forcing UEFI on us.
Although both are insecure vs a libre BIOS such as select coreboot
boards (ex: KCMA-D8/KGPE-D16) and the OpenPOWER TALOS 2 (only $2.5K now
for board/cpu - which is less than x86_64 server hardware with equiv
I highly suggest getting one ASAP, especially as the D8 and D16 are the
last best owner controlled x86_64 boards and they will stop being
available soon (the libre firmware has more features than the closed
source firmware, there is also OpenBMC which is so much better than the
exploit filled OEM BMC firmware) and are capable of playing modern games
in a VM via IOMMU-GFX.
Building and flashing firmware is very easy on these boards.
