Shaking my head at this marketing BS from Purism. They believe in free software "to their core" so much that they colluded with the FSF and spent a ton of work *hiding* proprietary blobs from users (and eliminating their freedom to see them, audit them, and replace them)

Thread here. There is no such thing as a 100% Free platform. There are freer and less free platforms, and then there are those who deceive in order to claim they're 100% free by some arbitrary meaningless definition.
Reading up on the @Puri_sm Librem 5. Nice idea, but it's a damn shame they're using the @FSF RYF certification as a goal and to guide the development process. RYF is total nonsense that encourages *decreasing* user freedom.Show this thread
If you care about software and hardware freedom for practical reasons (as opposed to some arbitrary religious dogma promulgated by the FSF with no objective backing), then focus on those who deliver results, instead of vying for some meaningless (or worse) certification.
The push for software and hardware freedom is real, and more and more platforms are becoming freer and freer. But if someone claims to be selling you True Freedom today, they're probably lying. Honest developers will carefully explain the limits to the freedom of their product.
