"The Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) Shell is designed
for programmers who are writing automation process software for
computer-based equipment. Traditionally this software was based on
various DOS family operating systems that were popular during the
1980s. While the processes may vary from hardware validation to
software testing to manufacturing, the basics of automation are the
same. The UEFI Shell provides a modern base to the traditional
commands common to any operating system. It does so in many cases in
the words that the programmers speak, even if they at times speak
different languages."

Yep, it's really an operating system now. This is all quite unbelievable ...
