Minifree x200 unboxing/discovery thread
Just unboxed the x200 I ordered from http://minifree.org/. I got it in the mail. I must have unwrapped 50 feet of bubble wrap.... I have no worries about it being damaged in the hop across the pond.
I turned it on and it quickly flashed a drawing of a penguin hugging a gnu from the libreboot bios, and in 5 seconds it was booted and at a prompt for me to log in.
I logged in. Opengl was working, wifi was working, out of the box. What universe am I in???
This thing has 8GB (oops, said 16GB initially) of ram, a 1 terabyte hard drive. It's lightning fast. I can't believe this is a totally free system. I also embarassingly admit at how surprised I am at how nice the Trisquel install is on here.
I can't believe it. It runs so nicely, it's so light, it's so fast... it's the nicest machine I've ever owned.
What is going on??? I thought free software users were supposed to have a hard time with hardware? Hats off to Minifree, impressive frelling work. Whoa.
