Why Sunshine and Bug Fixing Go Together

I was having lunch at the recent LinuxCon and Plumbers conference with a colleague, bragging as usual about how much I love my home near Portland, Oregon. He was having none of it - he feels like Boulder, Colorado where he lives is superior and he was frankly being belligerent about it. (Imagine that, and he even worked for me for a while!) I suppose there are some things to like about Boulder, but I trudged through hip-deep snow there just last winter. In Portland, people claims it rains all the time, but this summer keeps going on and on.

It's good weather to fix bugs in.

EFI Shells and Scripting

Introduction

Extensible firmware interface (EFI) brings new flexibility and opportunities to users by allowing them to work in the layer between their OS and BIOS, without altering either one. This paper explains how to use EFI shell commands, create a script file and set up the boot menu with shells and scripts. In addition, this paper demonstrates dual boot selection for the 64-bit Red Hat Linux* 7.1 and 64-bit Microsoft Windows* XP Professional operating systems.
