COREBOOT --
This morning was news about Libreboot supporting another AMD server motherboard. Another motherboard -- this time an Intel board -- was added today since then to this Coreboot downstream that initializes the hardware without any proprietary firmware/microcode.

The latest motherboard supported by Libreboot is now the Intel D510MO, which is a desktop motherboard but unfortunately rather old. The D510MO is a mini-ITX motherboard released back in 2009 and features an Intel Atom D510 processor, Intel GMA3150 graphics, support for two DDR2 DIMM slots, Serial ATA 2.0 support, and USB connectivity.


If you'd like a 100% free system down to the BIOS and don't mind dated hardware by today's standards, it looks like some resellers are still selling the D510MO board but it will cost you around $175 for this old Atom-powered board. Support for this D510 motherboard landed in Libreboot today with this Git commit.
