'CoreBoot', and 'What In Startup'

Dennis Faas's picture


For Geeks Only! CoreBoot (formerly known as LinuxBIOS) is a Free Software project aimed at replacing the proprietary BIOS (firmware) you can find in most of today's computers. It performs just a little bit of hardware initialization and then executes a so-called payload. Benefits: 100% Free Software (GPL), no royalties, no license fees; fast boot times (3 seconds to Linux console); supports many mainboards, chipsets, and payloads. Currently supported are 212 different mainboards.


What In Startup

This utility displays the list of all applications that are loaded automatically when Windows starts up. For each application, the following information is displayed: Startup Type (Registry/Startup Folder), Command-Line String, Product Name, File Version, Company Name, Location in the Registry or file system, and more.
