Libreboot bios and uefi alternative


New member
Yes, Libreboot is a free and open-source boot firmware project that replaces the proprietary BIOS/UEFI firmware on many computers. It is based on coreboot, which is a low-level firmware that initializes the hardware and starts a bootloader for the operating system. Libreboot is supported by many Linux and BSD distributions, but it is also possible to use it with other operating systems.

Here are some of the benefits of using Libreboot:

  • Security: Libreboot is more secure than proprietary BIOS/UEFI firmware because it is open source and has been audited by security researchers. This means that there is a lower risk of firmware vulnerabilities being exploited by attackers.
  • Privacy: Libreboot does not contain any telemetry or backdoors. This means that your computer is less likely to be monitored by third parties.
  • Freedom: Libreboot is free software, which means that you have the freedom to use, modify, and redistribute it. This is important for people who value their digital freedom.
If you are looking for a more secure, private, and free boot firmware solution, then Libreboot is a great option.

Here are some examples of computers that are supported by Libreboot:

  • ThinkPads
  • Dell XPS
  • System76 Lemur
  • Purism Librem 15
  • Librem Mini
  • Minifree
