Not even a 'free' BIOS can prevent compromised microcode.
Nonono. Not a hipster. The term that a hipster would have used would be "Tin Foil Fedora".
"Since some time, I am working on a replacement of our current shell script based boot process to something more flexible, a similar solution to Apple's launchd, and Linux's systemd."
Hosts file pointing anything going to update to localhost until you're ready to install them. No, we shouldn't have to do that but if they want to fuck with my control over my system I can fuck back.
Given the ignorance of the post you replied to I wouldn't be so sure that the person posting it has even heard of Voltaire.
The 'dwarf' was in parenthesis because I don't agree with the IAU's distinction
If the center that is orbited is inside the mass of the 'mother' planet then it's a moon/satellite.

Nope. Getting a college degree, you actually learn something.
Having been a hiring manager for many years in a past life I can tell you right now that your statement is pretty much BS. I've seen many college grads who didn't have any demonstrable knowledge at all. I've seen some that did of course, but getting a degree is no guarantee that a candidate really learned anything, or at least anything remotely useful.
