itnewstoday.com: Ubuntu 9.10 was reviewed right here on this site. At the time, I found that the temporary theme wasn’t the greatest thing that I’ve ever seen, though it was a worthy upgrade to anyone using 9.04. However, since then my experiences with it have changed my view considerably.

Librem Linux Laptop Drops NVIDIA Graphics But Still Coming Up Short Of Goal

One of the oddest things I found about the crowd-funded Librem 15 laptop when writing about it last month was that it wanted to be open-source down to the component firmware/microcode yet they opted to ship with a NVIDIA GPU. In an updated earlier this month, at least they came to their senses and dropped the discrete NVIDIA GPU. While I have no problems recommending NVIDIA graphics for Linux gamers and those wanting the best performance, that's only when using the proprietary drivers, and certainly wouldn't recommend it for a fully open-source system -- NVIDIA on the desktop side doesn't do much for the open-source drivers, let alone down to the firmware/microcode level. Instead the Librem folks have opted to upgrade the design to using an Intel Core i7 4770HQ processor that features more powerful Intel Iris Pro 5200 Graphics, which isn't as powerful as a discrete NVIDIA GPU but at least is more open-source friendly.
