There seems to be a lot of confusion about LinuxBIOS itself in the "general public", but also when it comes to comparing LinuxBIOS to similar projects and systems, e.g. OpenBIOS, Open Firmware, EFI, GNUFI, uboot, etc. etc.

We should have an easily understandable (for non-techsavvy people) entry in the FAQ which outlines what all those projects are about, their goals, pros, and cons.

We have not had anyone confusing the projects in quite a while, so apparently this became good enough. Closing.
