These days, you should not buy a Linux system if it isn't supported by

FWUpd is now a Linux Foundation project.


Fwupd is to Linux as Windows Update is to Windows, the main method for

If OpenBMC doesn't support FWUpd they'll need to duplicate most of the
infra that FWUpd has.

Having OpenBMC support FWupd would be a very good security feature.
