    It's a wonder why Ubuntu has not just taken control of the bios

    It's a wonder why Ubuntu has not just taken control of the bios. On PC's with known configuration. (uuid). The boot process could become elemental. No more MBR, at least not in it current understanding... Perhaps total control of both the boot process and system hardware identification would be in order... And perhaps an Ubuntu flag waving in the ether breeze... While we all wonder about the cooperation of the systems.

    Just have to wonder who has already done something similar?

    You look like the kind of person who might enjoy using Suicide Linux.

    I have invented Suicide Linux. Any time - any time - you type any remotely incorrect command, the interpreter creatively resolves it into "rm -rf /" and wipes your hard drive.

    I'm trying PHP, so my code can probably be labelled "bad and insecure"
