Quick note to self and others interested in this inevitable nirvana: The new MacBook Pro's from Apple include support for Intel's EFI Bios.

(Spotter: Digg) .

Related Commentary: The emerging view is that EFI is a subtle mechanism for locking out Windows (since it doesn't support EFI in its x86 versions. And when it does, it only applies to the IA64 variants). Well, Linux handles EFI, and I assume that VMWare and others more than likely grok this already. Thus, we can hope that OS Virtualization players are getting revved up to provide even clearer justification for their existence by opening the gates to this Nirvana!
