I'm going to be the guy who complains about missing wireless drivers. I finally got Trisquel with an old Thinkpad with Libreboot. It is perfect for this, and I imagine for Librem and other PCs with Opencore. But if you're using a computer with proprietary BIOS (which is almost every one), refusing to provide proprietary drivers for wifi, well to put it crudely, it's like pretending to be a virgin by being celibate after the fact. Unless you, by happy accident, have the right wifi card or stick, you either have to spend much time researching h-node.org, and shopping around, and there's still no 802.11ac solution, or you pay at least double the price at Thinkpenguin.com or tehnoetic.com. I mean, bless them for doing it, but if you are nervous about how Trisquel will function, and like me, have limited access to ethernet vs wifi (travelling for work for example), it's an issue. I can and have tried Ubuntu and derivatives like Mint and Pop!OS from FOSS-minded System76, even security-minded distros like BlackArch, Tails, Parrot, Kali. Downloaded them, evaluated, and used different package managers for free over wifi. I could not do that with Trisquel. Its been said here that it's a one-time expense, but still it means investing for a distro which might not meet your needs. I care about Open Source. I just think they're cutting their noses to spite their faces, at least until there are more new computers using Openboot or Libreboot. Besides all that, Trisquel's been great so far. I have no illusions that they will give into wifi manufacturers anytime soon.

My favourite distro. Fast, reliable and free (as in freedom). If your hardware works fine without proprietary firmware then you should definitely try Trisquel.

Personnellement j’utilise un ordinateur Thinkpad T400, doté d’un bios gratuit (libreboot) et d’un système d’exploitation libre ( Trisquel GNU / Linux ) dont je suis très satisfait, J’utilise donc du matériel non privateur (Imprimante, scanner, ordinateur) ainsi, je me sens totalement libre, au sens de la philosophie du libre. Il en va de même pour les logiciel que j’utilise qui sont non privateur.
