Windows Vista will receive support for the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface technology by late 2007, Microsoft promised. The technology is set to replace the Bios, leading to shorter boot times and unlocking advanced features.
Microsoft disappointed many users and developers earlier this year when it pulled support for the technology from Windows Vista. That was in part because Apple is using UEFI on its Intel powered systems and UEFI Vista would enable users to run Vista on their Macs. But Apple itself has solved that issue with the creation of Bios powered Bootcamp.
