I'm in the UK and would like to buy a workstation that can be 100%
Free Software, using gNewSense and a Free Software BIOS - ie,
LinuxBIOS - and am not sure where to turn.

Any idea? :-)

Hello Dave,

I've checked that list and you'll find all those boards are quite old,
i.e. socket 754, 940 and 604 which have been replaced some time ago.

None of our motherboards support the BIOS and we don't plan to offer
systems with this support.
