> We're moving into an era increasingly where it's very hard to install FOSS software on devices
ME is undesireable, but it doesn't prevent you from installing your libre os of choice. hell, i even have OPTIONS when it comes to which Android device i want to flash with LineageOS or CopperheadOS. people flip out about SecureBoot, but none of the supposed threats ever materialized. all of my hardware even lets me enroll my own keys.
i do agree that more open hardware is better, but the tired FSF approach of screaming about how doomed we are isn't productive imo.
