PureBoot is Purism’s solution for high security boot firmware that gives you complete control.

While we design PureBoot’s defaults to meet most people’s needs, you can also create your own version with custom features, pre-approved USB keys, and all with little risk to your Librem 14 laptop.

@Texou @purism I agree that accessibility still needs a lot of work on free software, especially on mobile. It is something we think is important and want to continue to improve as we can!

Kyle Rankin (@kyle), President of Purism, talks to CNBC about how Librem 5 USA📱 is built mindfully towards a secure supply chain. “At Purism we think data is uranium, so we treat it like a radioactive substance where we collect as little of it as humanly possible. Every extra link you add to the supply chain is an extra opportunity for someone to inject themselves in that supply chain and tamper with things.” Get the full context ➡️ puri.sm/posts/how-purism-is-ad

We are most thankful for you, our customers and supporters. It’s all our customers who support us to continue our Social Purpose. Each purchase allows us to fund not just the hardware and the team that prepares and ships it, but a more significant amount of that purchase goes directly to fund free software development🎉

Imagine you could install any software on any device. The devices you own that don't receive updates anymore, or where you found out that the software is full of ads/tracking. You could replace it, maybe with a Linux distro like postmarketOS running mainline. These devices wouldn't need to be electronic waste. We signed @fsfe's #openletter to the EU to make this happen.

You can sign it, too!

I was interviewed about supply chain security (around 15 min mark) in a longer CNBC feature about manufacturing phones in the USA. In short, it's less about trust concerns with any particular country/govt., and more about reducing the links in the supply chain to reduce the opportunities to tamper with hardware.

Our Made-in-USA-electronics Librem 5 USA phone also got a number of shout-outs. Pretty neat!

Over the past few weeks we have seen a massive shift away from a centralized, proprietary social media platform (Twitter) onto a decentralized, federated, open one (Mastodon) that along with a few other indicators points to the pendulum starting to swing back toward an interest in open protocols, networks, and technologies beyond social media.
