About the Free Firmware Song:

I, Leah Rowe, was doing a Libreboot T400 flashing video for people to follow, so they could know how to install Libreboot onto their T400. I put a clip of Richard singing the Free Firmware Song at the start of the video.

Well, at the end of the video I got a spark of creativity and just rolled with it. I pretty much came up with the parody on the spot!

Rumour has it that I sing this song every time I flash a Libreboot laptop and sell it on my web store, https://retrofreedom.com/

I have no comment!

Libreboot

Info about Libreboot: https://libreboot.org

Libreboot is free boot firmware, to replace BIOS/UEFI. It initializes all of the hardware in your computer, so that you can load an operating system such as GNU+Linux.

You can install Libreboot yourself, on available supported hardware, or buy from a company that sells computers with Libreboot already installed. See:
