Slackware vs. EFI/UEFI
I never had to deal with EFI/UEFI, but it looks like I will have to starting on Monday, since I have a new training class, and they all have brand-new Dell Vostro laptops.
As far as I know, most EFI/UEFI mainboards can also be "reverted" to legacy BIOS mode. But I'm just curious: does Slackware support EFI/UEFI? Until now, I've never had to deal with that sort of hardware.
By the way: the training class is a complete four month course in Linux System Administration for a company. I decided to base the course essentially on Slackware 14.0 (headless on servers, Xfce on desktops) with the occasional aside on Debian and CentOS.
