Porteus Kernel Builder

BIOS Flashing is a permanent procedure, microcode overwritten in the chip on Motherboard.

Loading new Microcode as an image file before initrd, during boot is a temporary affair, executed by the kernel every boot. Remove the image file from boot order, you go back to original old code.

Spectre script probably uses those files to dig deeper and present report. (see an Ubuntu install) Porteus does not. vulnerable part for mine: CVE-2...

Font rendering is still a little bit awkward and one of the last weaknesses of Linux desktops. https://pandasauce.org/post/linux-fonts/ looks ...
