I've gotten rid of MS completely, I don't run a dual system.

Whether or not you have dispensed with Microsoft is entirely irrelevant to this. What matters is whether or not the hardware vendors have.

AFAIK the only ones that have done so have a high markup for it (e.g. specialist computer makers who cater to the Linux crowd, especially OSS devotees) and are relatively small, don't make PC hardware, make very specialized hardware, or are out of business. As this involves the motherboard for the most part, that narrows down any existing choices by that much.

Well, that's just wrong.

Besides, it's fairly trivial to not update your BIOS if this would be a problem.
