Microsoft announces Project Mu, a new piece of software that aims to bring firmware-as-a-service to open source. Basically, Project Mu aims to help developers to roll out their own UEFI implementations. It's based on TianoCore, but with enhancements to enable rapid servicing across multiple product lines. Full details at the Windows Blog.
Project Mu includes:
  • A code structure & development process optimized for Firmware as a Service
  • An on-screen keyboard
  • Secure management of UEFI settings
  • Improved security by removing unnecessary legacy code, a practice known as attack surface reduction
  • High-performance boot
  • Modern BIOS menu examples
  • Numerous tests & tools to analyze and optimize UEFI quality.
