Taurinus X200 laptop now FSF-certified to respect your freedom

in hardware on (#NZ56)
story imageThe Free Software Foundation (FSF) has awarded its Respects Your Freedom (RYF) certification to the Taurinus X200 laptop sold by Libiquity. The RYF certification mark means that the product meets the FSF's standards in regard to users' freedom, control over the product, and privacy. The Taurinus X200 comes with Libreboot firmware and the FSF-endorsed Trisquel GNU/Linux operating system. Importantly, Intel's Management Engine (ME) firmware with its applications like AMT (remote out-of-band management/backdoor system, part of "vPro") and PAVP (audio/video DRM) have been removed from this laptop. The laptop ships within the USA and may be purchased from the Libiquity Store.

It's okay. Intel has never spied on their customers. Ever. Those stories about backdoors and phoning home are completely false. There is no "second operating system" in the hardware hidden from users, capable of being hacked into, capable of taking control of the primary OS. Complete and utter lies. Trust us. - NSA
