Comment System 76 for sure! (Score 1) 477

Yeah.... but System76 takes care of stuff like broken microphone drivers or bad keyboard. They take Clevo and put Ubuntu on it and make sure everything is ok. I have a System 76 Galago Ultra Pro with HDD AND SSD with a ArchLinux and Debian on it and it works great. I have a killer wireles board with open source wifi drivers. They keyboard was not that great but they are sending new ones to everybody who wants them. They developed a brand new keyboard model witch fixes the old keyboard issues. It's easy to change also https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yqIj1T-LKrc

BSD think of the freedom of the distributor, the GPL thinks of the freedom of the user. I see myself as a user, you see yourself as a proprietary distributor. BSD code helps build DRMed jails for Sony and Apple. I prefer a license that disallows this. I want to share my code with anyone in the world who does not to build proprietary stuff (for building new software). And share my software with anyone for usage, regardless of the purpose.
