    The GNU Linux-Libre 4.12 kernel is now available and is the sanitized version of the Linux 4.12 kernel to ensure no binary-only firmware blobs are loaded or used by this trimmed down Linux kernel...

              To think that end-user support is the only goal of software development is pretty close minded. There are other goals here and like protecting the freedom of the user at all costs and making sure the user has full control over his device.

                I have no idea, but it's something that I'm very interested in.

                What racism?
                Wanting to have free and open source software is racism?
                Wanting to not be spied on and stolen of sensitive data is racism?

                I like that people fight so hard to protect privacy and freedom.
                These are our heroes!

                  And therefor the free software movement is something completely different then the open source people.

                  We discreminate against software that tries to steal our freedom. Nobody forces you to use that but its a additional option, you can test it to see if a vendor activity wants to hurt you with nasty antifeatures. If this kernel don't work with your hardware changes are nearly 100% that the vendor hides some backdoors or other antifeatures from you.

                  Especially with drivers there is no harmless excuse like they only want to make money cause its freemium anyway. So there are only very evil reasons left.

                    No, exactly the opposite.
