    Though frankly I am not aware of any basic USB microphone requiring binary drivers or binary firmware these days...
    No, but it has a freer sound

    - Penguin Wireless G USB Adapter (TPE-G54USB2)
    - Penguin USB Desktop Microphone for GNU / Linux (TPE-USBMIC)
    - Penguin Wireless N Dual-Band PCIe Card (TPE-N300PCIED2)
    - PCIe Gigabit Ethernet Card Dual Port (TPE-1000MPCIE)
    - PCI Gigabit Ethernet Card (TPE-1000MPCI)
    - Penguin 10/100 USB Ethernet Network Adapter v1 (TPE-100NET1)
    - Penguin 10/100 USB Ethernet Network Adapter v2 (TPE-100NET2)
    Is this some kind of joke?

    Oh wait, it's no joke. WiFi compatibility in Linux is so dated that only two USB 80211ac chipsets (out of more than 30) are usable with a mainline kernel from the last four months.

    The only option available for true USB WiFi compatibility is to use 20 year old hardware. I get it.

    While other microphones may nod need blob drivers either, it can be simply that they never bothered to apply for RYF.
