    Hello all, was just reading the BBC news site and came across this article about BIOS being reflaced by UEFI- was wondering if any tech savvy folk might know a little more about how it might affect mac boot times? Sounds a major leap from what I could glean

    Thanks- probably should have read a little deeper into

    Some PC and laptop makers are already using UEFI as are many firms that make embedded computers. More, said Mr Richardson, will result as motherboard makers complete the shift to using it.

    Doesn't seem so newsworthy now- especially given they didn't differentiate as clearly between PC and windows / OS

    And it would explain why my Acorn a3010 booted so fast twenty odd years ago! Cheers
