not got down to that, the most important thing for me on the ThinkPad
was it removed the PCI whitelist so I could install any wireless adapter
There's modified versions of the stock BIOS about, but not of the latest
I don't think coreboot unlocks any new performance features (would be
interesting to see if it adds the turbo functionality on the core2duo as
per the modified variant of the X61 series BIOS) but I didn't notice any
I'd look at it more as what artificial restrictions imposed by vendor
does it remove, it would be a killer in the server market imo (imagine
servers that didn't take 5+ minutes to POST! or a auditable/sane IPMI
(like?) implementation ).
The most fun thing is there's a new BIOS image to flash nearly every day! :)
