Make it more open

This is a good idea but if the BIOS still has to load then that accounts for several seconds

I would prefer more an enabling technology. e.g. ensure that the drivers for the motherboard components exist in LinuxBIOS and then then the open source community provide different slimmed down OS images that do different things to suit different people
