    Can someone explain me the difference between OpenFirmware, BIOS and EFI?

    And why is BIOS so bad in comparision with OpenFirmware and EFI?

    Thank you!

    As a beginning to learning this, did you try reading about each in Wikipedia? While not the ultimate authority on anything, I find Wikipedia is a good place to start, especially when learning basics.
