Hoping that 2020 can be the year I eliminate the last remnants of proprietary software from my life (at least above the firmware level)

@qyliss I have the same goal. I am getting a Librebooted thinkpad and a PinePhone.

Right now I basically have a tablet with a keyboard. It is an Amazon tablet, but I was able to neutralize most of the hostile applications.

The best thing is to just not use nonfree software to begin with. Fortunately I never became very attached to proprietary systems (for example, I never got a Facebook account or used a Mac). Before my computer broke, the only nonfree software it ran was the kernel firmware plus whatever garbage the BIOS and Intel CPU had.

@masterofthetiger
Who are you buying the thinkpad from? Curious to see how well the librebooted ones work in 2020.
@qyliss

@magneticeagle @qyliss I bought a used one offof eBay and am having it librebooted by other seller on eBay.
