A Look at Preinstalled Linux

Today, however, the company website raises some misgivings. Purism invested heavily in the Librem 5, its Linux phone, and there may have been some cost overruns (the price of the finished product is $1,299, or $1,999 for an American-built one), and some customers are complaining elsewhere that they have been waiting for their phones for years. Unsurprisingly, these days, the company appears to be primarily concerned with promoting the Librem 5. Its computers now number three: a laptop, a mini, and a server – which may be sufficient, but suggest a company distracted by more immediate concerns than customer satisfaction. Despite the company’s outstanding earlier accomplishments, potential buyers may decide to be cautious.

System76

In the last five years, System76 (Figure 8) has emerged as a leader in open hardware. The company features a complete product line for all levels of user, featuring six laptops, three desktops, and two servers, with hardware from Intel, AMD, and NVIDIA. Although early products included proprietary firmware, System76 has gradually transitioned, all six of its laptops feature coreboot, and the intention is to eventually transition its other products. In addition, System 76 has developed its own keyboards, stylish cases for its desktop machines, and Pop!_OS, a distribution with perhaps the easiest to use tiling window manager ever.
