    system76 created firmware manager overlapping with standard fwupd frontends, why you noticed it only now?
    subj is power user variant which shows all devices and all available firmware versions, i.e. it allows downgrade, instead of just update to latest

    it's dell doing it, not redhat. and it is no more gnome-centric than system76 abortion. and unlike system76 dell does it right, collaborating with community

    Daktyl198 DE-independence is bad economy. More cost than benefit.

    Was thinking more specifically like this software with quickly seeing notes, downgrading, etc just for firmware, not that of simply offering updates which is what Gnome Software does.

    This is a few months old, so in practice it came first.
