Clover is a new and exciting open source EFI bootloader. Developed over the past 3 years by a group of developers at Project OS X led by Slice, Clover aims to solve problems inherent in existing OS X installation methods and legacy bootloaders:
Boots troublesome desktop and laptop BIOS/UEFI Uses native OS X installation media Ability to patch DSDT/kernel/kexts at boot time Creates OS X Recovery partition No boot0 error with 4K Advanced Format drives Solves multi-boot issues with Linux and Windows 7/8 Solves traditional bootloader NVRAM issues related to iMessage/FaceTime Clover has a completely different system of configuration with a decidedly steep learning curve.
With the introduction of Windows Vista and Office 2007 Microsoft included some new fonts, which became the defaults in Office. Their names all start with ‘C’ and they are quite attractive. In particular there is a monospaced font called Consolas that is nice to use as a text editor font and Terminal font. The problem is they aren’t technically free, although Microsoft does include them in a number of freely available updaters.
