I've been playing with the Tricore EFI Framework. For giggles I even replaced the "Put logo here" splash screen with a black background and a white apple logo lol. The EFI Framework is way different then the Apple setup, it's more of a unix environment but of course it's a framework for development use for hardware drivers and extension applications such as a TCP/IP stack, file manager and so on.

Sadly there isn't a binary available so you have to use Windows and visual studio 2003 .net to compile it and run it in emulation.

As I said before the framework is for development use and can not be used as a BIOS replacement. However the more I play with it, it feels like the CoreBoot (LinuxBIOS) project.

Here are a couple of screen shots.
