    All hardware is compromised. But yes, my future hardware purchasing decisions will be driven by how well they're supported by free software.

      not if you can LIbre/Coreboot it. but still, stock BIOS + fully free distro is still better than stock BIOS + nonfree distro or Windows or MacOS

        CPUs are a black box lil bro they run their own os and have full access to the network stack

          How? The os handles authentication to your router, the bios has no facility for it and neither does the cpu.

      Just work with me to make Jesus OS a reality.

      Jesus OS premise in a nutshell:
      Because: Computer cheap
      1 core, only, 1 process, only, per computer

      Because: All is botnet
      No normal networking. Instead, special data links designed to be slow, and inspected, and the data transferred is one way. Requests are made on a separate similar data link.

      Also use multiple screens, screens are cheap.

      Integration is unnecessary in most cases eg, run spotify, or other media players, on a dedicated tablet. There is no reason to comingle audio and visual unless you have audio rights, make kino.

      there does exist a linux-libre-hardened kernel for parabola if linux-hardened is compromised

      Graphene requires proprietary blobs and runs exclusively on ~~*google pixels*~~. It is literally a glowBlack person honeypot.

      Your free software wont save you when police confiscate your machine. Your ISP is keeping track of everything you do. Just use what works. The "chad" thing to do would be to use computers as infrequently as possible. Write checks. Send letters. Go to the library and listen to the radio for information. Talk to people in real life.

      Nope, that's incorrect. Only computers made after about 2006 or so are compromised. Secret laws passed after 9/11 gave chip makers five years to comply with the mandate for secret, illegal backdoors.

        and hardware from 2007-2011 are easy to de-compromise with libreboot like the X200.

    parabola is based and bill auger is GOAT for help on irc

      this. the only problem is that some of the packages is the parabola repos are outdated. I wish parabola took the Artix approach of having their own repos rather than using the parabola repos for the few free packages and the Arch repos for everything else.

          yeah but so does every phone. LineageOS isn't any better. in fact it's worse. worst of both worlds in terms of both security, privacy, freedom.

      I notice that you are contemplating lowering your testosterone. Since you have chosen that route, you should definitely begin meeting with a surgeon to remove testicle.

    Freetards think that proprietary firmware loaded into your hardware by the OS is somehow worse than older firmware that is already embedded in the hardware and has known vulnerabilities.

    But sure, use your system with the embedded broken microcode and proprietary firmware embedded in your atheros WiFi card. As long as the OS doesn't see it, it truly makes you free.
