Do all of System76’s laptops have coreboot?(specifically the Pangolin and yes I know that they arent on stock rn)

From this article: https://www.forbes.com/sites/jasonevangelho/2021/03/16/system76-is-finally-selling-that-amd-ryzen-laptop-you-want/?sh=305a228b1de9

However, it doesn’t look like Coreboot will make an appearance in Pangolin. I’m still waiting for confirmation from System76 on that front.

[UPDATE: Jeremy Soller says “Coreboot on AMD has a long way to go before it can be used in a product.”]

So it looks like no.

No problem. By the way I own a Pangolin and a Meerkat so I can try and answer things for you.

My older Gaze10 doesn’t 😜 Luckily it did get a UEFI upgrade allowing me to disable Intel ME, so that’s cool.

Only newer models are supported by coreboot and even then not all of them. I recommend looking up each laptop you are interested in.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
