The BIOS should be dumb, but in practice it [isn't].

And in case it wasn't clear, this is exactly the point I opened the thread with, if BIOS means "the code fixed to the motherboard that boots the OS."

I would like to see that intelligence moved into a physically changeable, easily creatable storage device and suggest that a Linux system on a USB disk is the best choice for that.
