Heh. Note how they don't talk about total boot time or the time until
the payload has finished execution. They just talk about the time needed
until control is passed to the payload and mention "milliseconds" (note
how they don't specify how many). We should advertise the same way, it's
simply more impressive.

"Coreboot only spends a few milliseconds after poweron doing the
absolutely neccessary setup. Your operating system of choice can run
directly after that directly from flash with no additional delays.
Coreboot has been offering that ability for over ten years."
