Stoobalou writes with news that MSI is planning a big shift towards UEFI (universal extensible firmware interface) at the end of 2010, possibly spelling the beginning of the end of the BIOS as we know it. “It’s the one major part of the computer that’s still reminiscent of the PC’s primordial, text-based beginnings, but the familiarly clunky BIOS could soon be on its deathbed, according to MSI. The motherboard maker says it’s now making a big shift towards point-and-click UEFI systems, and it’s all going to kick off at the end of this year. Speaking to Thinq, a spokesperson for the company in Taiwan who wished to remain anonymous said, ‘MSI will start to phase in UEFI starting from the end of this year, and we expect it will be widely adopted after three years.’”
