<h2>Companies that sell computers with <acronym title="GNU's Not Unix!">GNU</acronym>/Linux preinstalled</h2>

<p>There are computers capable of running with only free
    software. These computers put the user in complete control of per
    computer and are endorsed by FSF's Respects Your Freedom (RYF)
    certification program. For a list of companies that sell this type
    of computers, look at <a href="https://fsf.org/ryf">fsf.org/ryf</a>.</p>

<p>There are also computers that come pre-installed with a fully free
    GNU/Linux operating system but require the use of a proprietary
    BIOS and if it is an Intel computer, it might contain Intel ME,
    which is <a href="https://www.fsf.org/blogs/licensing/intel-me-and-why-we-should-get-rid-of-me">a backdoor</a>. These
    computers are not certified by the FSF's Respects Your Freedom
    (RYF) certification program. For list of companies that sell this
