I didn't make it to WWDC this year but rumor has it the transition
boxes are using a standard BIOS therefore the partition table is
the fdisk format just like current OpenDarwin releases. I don't
think Apple has been explicit in their real choice for what will
eventually ship. Hopefully they'll communicate that to us within
the next few months.
Correct. We realize there are lots of folks that need to know what
is going to be in the ROMs on these new machines, and what partition
scheme will be used. Unfortunately, we are not yet in a position to
make that information available, but we will communicate it as soon
as we reasonably can. Don't assume that what you see in the
transition boxes represents what will be present in the final product.
I'm cautiously hoping for EFI as the firmware.
The general consensus I've heard from other developers is:
1) They don't want us to use BIOS
2) If they haven't heard of EFI, they want us to use OF
3) If they have heard of EFI, they want us to use EFI
This is not a statement about what Apple will use, just what I've
heard from developers that have an opinion on the subject.
Hang in there...
