Libreboot - free your BIOS today!
Free (libre) boot firmware based on coreboot.
Libreboot - free software BIOS replacement (boot firmware), based on coreboot, for laptops and servers, and x86 (Intel/AMD) and ARM hardware.
Libreboot is a free software BIOS replacement (boot firmware), based on coreboot, for Intel, AMD and ARM based systems. Backed by the Free Software Foundation, the aim of the Libreboot project is to provide individuals and companies with an escape from proprietary firmware in their computing. Libreboot is also being reviewed for entry as an official component of the GNU system.
Boot firmware is the low-level software that runs when you turn your computer on, which initializes the hardware and starts a bootloader for your operating system. Libreboot currently supports laptops and servers, on x86 (Intel and AMD) and ARM (Rockchip RK3288), with more hardware support on the horizon. The purpose of this talk is to describe the history of the project, why it started, why it's important, where it's going and, most importantly, to tell people how they can get involved.
