Where do Mageia 1 and Mageia 2 stand regarding UEFI boot, disk sizes etc?

  I saw a lot of fearful discussion 3-4 months ago about hardware 
becoming dedicated to MS and unchangeable to linux.  Went shopping for 
new motherboards today and couldn't get relevant info; seems with ASUS 
and Gigabyte all the new Intel 2011 boards are UEFI.  Think I've seen 
that grub supports UEFI?  (Is my favorite lilo out the window now?)  
Will M2 (and will M1) install and boot on disks above 2.2TB?  What came 
of concerns re MS and cryptographic keys?
