LVFS Serves Up 25 Million Firmware/BIOS Updates to Linux Users

Michael Larabel, Phoronix:

It was just this past September that LVFS served its 20 millionth firmware file to Linux users updating their system BIOS or device firmware using Fwupd while this week the Linux Vendor Firmware Service crossed the 25 million milestone!

LVFS/Fwupd lead developer Richard Hughes of Red Hat relayed the news that LVFS has now served more than 25 million firmware files to Linux users. Considering just a few years ago it was difficult updating your system BIOS under Linux and most hardware vendors wouldn't even consider offering firmware updates for Linux, this is an incredible accomplishment.
