That statement is false. UEFI is absolutely important to server users.
That proportion goes down a lot as people transition from
premises to AWS. So this doesn't hurt their partnership with NVIDIA
where they tacitly encourage proprietary kernel module usage at scale.
Since KVM in RHEL doesn't support UEFI properly either, nobody is
seriously looking at the issues caused by multiplexing NVIDIA GPUs and
exposing them into virtual machines running in UEFI Secure Boot,
because this just doesn't happen there. I've tried it on my Fedora
systems, they don't work.
KVM in RHEL does support UEFI. That's not the say it everything is
bug-free, but it is supported as it is clearly the direction the
industry is going and new security features in particular increasingly
rely on UEFI.
