well now, firmware updates to my laptop via GNOME software (and fwupd) are very nice
@snwh I have the same laptop for work and had the same experience with a super-easy BIOS / EFI / firmware update.
It's amazing that updating the firmware on laptops is actually easier and smoother on Linux than it is on Windows! 😁
@garrett this is the first one I've gotten via fwupd and it's so much better than booting into windows to do it
@snwh Yep, they started doing it for Lenovos this week!
Previously, I had to download a random ISO, run a weird command to extract a payload file to a specific format, flash it to a USB stick, and reboot... then realize it was the wrong one when it didn't work and redid the entire process for the T460s, not the T460p, which was linked from a page for the T460s.
Windows isn't on my work laptop, so I either had to do that each time or not update.
Now? I click a button & reboot.
@snwh Ive only used the terminal app which was stupid-nice. Extremely simple and quick
