later - there are still hardly any OPAL drives in existance, until manufacturers start shipping them and they conform properly to the TCG standard, it's not going to be possible to properly support them.
By that, I don't mean "allow you to use the single BIOS password to authenticate", I mean give exactly the same experience you have with the current pre-boot, but use OPAL drive encryption instead of software encryption.
I'm not sure anyone could really accept going back to single bios style passwords now.

EEPC 6.2 is when EEPC will start to have support for Opal hardware.
Really? It's a good information!
