The official announcement notes that the Chromebook is built on "an open-source firmware stack". Does this mean that the laptop actually boots through Coreboot? That would be great news (and perhaps a reason to get a Chromebook). I've seen video demos of Chromebooks booting in 5 seconds (partly) because of Coreboot, but it would be great to have confirmation that you can actually buy a laptop that doesn't use a BIOS any more.
