Coreboot-supported Asus F2A85-M/CSM added to recommended hardware list

The FSF has updated its list of Recommended Complete Systems to include the Asus F2A85-M/CSM.

The Free Software Foundation's Recommended Complete Systems list is a great starting point for assembling a personal computer fully supported by entirely free software. In particular, this allows you to avoid various restrictive mechanisms, such as "treacherous computing," which is more deceptively marketed as "trusted computing," or what we call "restricted boot," which is marketed as "secure boot." Support from free drivers and a free BIOS protects users from external interference in their personal computing.

We have just updated the recommended hardware list to include the Asus F2A85-M/CSM, which is widely available and supported by Coreboot. The entire infrastructure of the Free Software Foundation is powered by fully free software with few exceptions (donated laptops don't all work with Coreboot). In this sense, we are eating our own dog food, and hopefully making it easier for others to follow in our footsteps.
