Interested in a libre-friendly, built to order desktop/workstation?

The Vikings KGPE-D16 mainboard is a high-end, reliable and server-grade x86 mainboard that is certified with FSF’s RYF (Respects Your Freedom) certificate.

Thanks to the work of Raptor Engineering/Coreboot it comes with absolutely no proprietary software, firmware blobs or backdoors, unlike all other x86 server or workstation systems.

The Free Software Foundation’s “Respects Your Freedom” hardware product certification

The Vikings D16 mainboard laptop fully meets the criteria for the FSF’s hardware endorsement program and was certified on 2017-03-03

“The desire to own a computer or device and have full control over it, to know that you are not being spied on or tracked, to run any software you wish without asking permission, and to share with friends without worrying about Digital Restrictions Management (DRM) —these are the desires of millions of people who care about the future of technology and our society.

Unfortunately, hardware manufacturers have until now relied on close cooperation with proprietary software companies that demanded control over their users. As citizens and their customers, we need to promote our desires for a new class of hardware — hardware that anyone can support because it respects your freedom.”

Boot firmware

The Vikings KGPE-D16 mainboard comes with coreboot and a Petitboot payload.

One of the good things about having a libre-friendly system is that you can replace the boot firmware from the user-space of your operating system.
