Yeah, making the BIOS area of the computer more user friendly is a great idea.

All right, so to sum it up:

- Oh no! My Son just screwed up computer, I am going to kill him, he messed up voltage and such
- Dude, there are passwords and such, plus you should tell him no to do that anymore
- No, I won't! Because "Curiosity, number one reason why most of us are good with computers."

Seriously, what is your problem?

In 10 years operating systems will be dead. With the new babel-gerbil technology on the way, alien gerbils will translate our thoughts directly into binary......negating the need for old fashion bloated 'interface systems'.

Really? Using a mouse+KB is slower than mouse or KB? Really?

So which do you use in your OS? Mouse only or keyboard only?

Huh? I have no idea what you are talking about here....

You're missing the point. The BIOS itself is the bloat. It is a 20 years piece of software design. GUI implementation is trivial today.

The logo screen shouldn't affect your POST time unless the company placed a delay timer on it. Have you objectively timed it?

Once again, give me a real reason why there should be a GUI on non-OEM motherboards.
Again... UEFI is not just about the GUI. So what if there is a nice GUI?

How about you provide a real reason why not? The GUI implementation is trivial. It would allows easier and faster navigation especially since UEFI will allow more options. Debug and stress test applications could be intergrated.

Really? The other MASSIVE reasons you miss on why people didn't use computers in the 1980-90s:
1) Benefit. Most people did not NEED a computer.
2) Cost. Without benefits, the cost could not be justified.
Once again...
