Coreboot is the alternative to UEFI.
If UEFI is such a threat to customer freedom and also, if problems are expected, that these are two reasons to have a second look at coreboot.
I am not interested in running a cracked Windows or whatever, I just do not want this functionality on my hardware.
Also, I do not wish to pay for its developement!
With Linux there are already problems with UEFI, because the mainboard/UEFI manufacturers do not adhere to the standards. (No link this time, please search yourself.)
I do not like that as well.
And since I am the customer, please, let me decide what I pay for.
