yes, but EFI is such a powerful operating system! And, fortunately, the 
API is totally new and incompatible with EVERYTHING, and it's not a very 
good API, so we get the benefit of having to learn a whole new api, with 
a special toolchain, that is useless for everything else we do.

I am sure I have not listed all the benefits of this new EFI operating 
system :-)
