Re:Firmware Updates

Thanks for your insights. Dual boot seems, unfortunately, to be the safest choice for the time being. Unless and until all vendors make their updates platform agnostic, I am concerned that MS has us a bit over a barrel.

The vendors provide their systems with Windows installed and don't expect or allow for modification. This casts a pall on the assertions of "supporting Linux", but what else is new? Lip service has long been the only service provided in abundance by the industry.
