This is the best part IMO:

Yeah. And the worst part is that it's written in Go instead of C or assembly.

Also that it's a pain to install and risky.

That is the fault of the manufacturers though. A bit of push-back to them is a good thing IMO.

Buyer: Can I run your system with the ME disabled?
Seller: Dunno LOL Smile
Buyer: NVM, I'll look for something else.
Seller: Hey, don't go. It comes in five awesome colour choices!!
Buyer: Ugh. I'm outta here.
