  • the maddening truth of using Qubes
    Coreboot/Libreboot (recently merged with OSboot, so presumably that means the policy problems have been fixed) as far as I know do not benefit from any such standardization and often have to resort to reverse-engineering. - Source: Reddit / 9 days ago
  • lenovo laptops are safe?
    Is the firmware private? I'd say yes, from everyone except maybe LEA. You can check out libreboot if you're interested. But unless you're a high value target, you shouldn't have to worry about this too much... - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago
  • looking for a privacy laptop that has no "intel me"
    If your need for privacy surpasses your need for current gen hardware look into libreboot. - Source: Reddit / 2 months ago
  • External reading of flash chip on x200 with Stock BIOS fails verification
    The libreboot.org project is active again if you want to try one of their images. - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago
  • Libreboot 20220710 released!
    Plenty you can still do on such hardware, in fact libreboot.org runs on said hardware. The server is literally a thinkpad. I compiled that libreboot release from today on a ThinkPad X200 Tablet, which I still personally use for all my daily computing. Also there's osboot. See: https://osboot.org/ - supports newer hardware, and can support anything from coreboot, because of different policy. - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago
