by `ICFOSS` has significance and the FOSS 
community is awaiting the talk by the CEO ,
`purism` FSUG is eagerly awaiting the inevitable
change to the use of fully free hardware not
compromising a computer user's freedom 
so that when he boots he uses `libreboot` 
or `coreboot` and when he uses his computer OS
he uses only free firmwares and he can be
sure that all software he use is free software.
In addition he can also be sure that the
hardware accessories he uses are also 
`non-tracking` and uses free firmwares.
