I admire the vigour in developing Libreboot, GRUB, rootfs 
and etc.  Yet, in the long term, my confidence is really 
in the approach advocated by Niklaus Wirth and associates. 
For example much of the difficulty in auditing a Linux 
software results from the immense size of it.  I'm not 
convinced that more will really bring improvement.  What's 
needed is less software and more efficiency.

Bear in mind that many wonderful gadgets were developed to 
improve steam locomotives.  A few remain in museums.  The 
rest are long gone to the steel furnace.

Regards,             ... Peter E.
