    Phoronix: Coreboot Adds Lenovo X220 With Native Sandy Bridge Support

    This month on Phoronix I covered Coreboot gaining support for the ThinkPad X200 and support for older MacBooks (along with the Chromebook Samus) while now Coreboot is enabling support for some newer ThinkPad laptops...

    Interesting will is it fully functionable or not?

    Also will it work with X220i (model with i3)?

      I don't think phoronix gets the idea of free software. You are saying these are much better alternatives than the FSF's Libreboot x60 because they are much newer, but what you don't get is it doesn't matter how new they are if they contain Intel Management Engine firmware. ME binaries makes it a proprietary device, therefore of course the FSF isnt going to endorse something that contains a newer intel processor.
