I'd like my company to be listed on this page, if that's OK? This page:


Here is my company:


I sell laptops by default with Debian Linux, but I gave customers the option to
choose another distro, or specifically FreeBSD/OpenBSD.

I do FreeBSD installs quite often, and I'd love to do more :)

I've been doing Linux stuff for years but I've always done BSD aswell, on
request, and in the last few months I've been advertising it much more openly.

When FreeBSD is requested, I then ask the customer basic questions like: what
desktop environment and other software do you want, do you want a firewall
configured, what sort of network will you plug it into, that sort of thing.
Every install is different, because everyone has different needs.

The description for the page, to be brief, should be:

Minifree Ltd provides serviced ThinkPads with Libreboot, which is free and
opensource boot firmware based on coreboot that replaces proprietary BIOS/UEFI
firmware. Customers can request installation of FreeBSD, in whichever
configuration they need, and it will be provided with full disk encryption. The
combination of coreboot results in a highly robust, secure laptop. Minifree has
been in business since 2014, and ships worldwide.


I'm also the founder of the Libreboot project, which provides ease to use boot
firmware based on coreboot, replacing proprietary vendor firmware. These
FreeBSD laptops come with Libreboot pre-installed, based on the guidance
mentioned here:
