Bios is dead

Time for a techy post. I was pleased to hear this morning that Bios could soon be replaced with a new system, UEFI, which will lead to PC's booting in seconds. Hoorah!

I had never thought about the Bios as being something that would be replaced or what having it actually means. This article is quite interesting for understanding the history of Bios, like it has been used since 1979 and was not intended to last as long as it has.

PS: I've discovered there are NO sexy images for "Bios"
