Bios? old pc user?
Authored by: bailey_ca on Dec 06, '05 08:58:20PM

That's it! If you kids don't stop arguing, I will turn this iMac around. We will go right back to PPCland, and you will NOT get to see IntelWorld. Do you want that?!

Stop the fussing. Mr. Know-it-all is just arguing semantics. OpenFirmware is indeed a BIOS by definition.

However, in popular language, OpenFirmware is the Mac BIOS, and "BIOS" is the PC screen you can only get to by hitting Del at startup. Or F1. Or Enter. Or whatever the manufacturer chooses.

Now sit down. We've got another seven hours until we get to the hotel, and I am NOT stopping at another rest area!
