Hmm, your probably right, I since checked the speed of my processor, and
it is 2.4 per processor and its a dual core.

But, the arm processor is 1.8 per processor and its a quad core. So if I
add it together, probably it would be additional 50% faster.

and considering what you said, extremely lightweight by comparison, I am
not sure how many more time lightweight, but I assume it would be like
ten times at least if not a lot more...

Also it would be good for long term use, where as the libreboot is
probably not gonna last that long.  Everyone who replied to me probably
knows this and more probably already. But good luck reverse engineering
that. :) it will be well worth it if you succeed.
