It's a typical /v/ overflow. Some of them are browsing /g/ even right now. Most likely to be found on speccy threads, RAM threads, Razer threads, Gaymen mouse/mousepad threads and nVidya threads.
If you only know the hardware this freedom ran on.
They're dells with a 'kewl' design and some colour lights.
I worked on an alienware laptop for 6 months (boss didn't have anything better), the design was ergonomically hostile and the lights were too distracting for me and people around me.
before i left i changed the manufacturer to dell instead of alienware in the system settings.

free as in FOSS
free as in "just as free as your distro, unless you're using trisquel or some other FSF-approved one"
free as in "if you can't understand that, you are free to go fuck yourself"
i'm a xubuntu user myself, but even ubuntu with unity is still completely FOSS. the amazon search, though certainly botnet, is still FOSS, and completely removable.
>All of the application software installed by default is free software. In addition, we install some hardware drivers that are available only in binary format, but such packages are clearly marked in the restricted component.

it might not be completely free by RMS standards, but neither are 99% of the distros used by other /g/entoomen.
tldr: don't believe the FUD about ubuntu. it's just as a free as any of the other popular distros on /g/.
oh shit, and if you're using intel integrated graphics, i'd also suggest upgrading your graphics stack via the xorg-edgers (https://launchpad.net/~xorg-edgers/+archive/ubuntu/ppa?field.series_filter=trusty) ppa. makes a huge difference with compositing.
I run an nVidia card so I don't think the Intel stack is being used. I'll add that PPA though so when I do switch over to the Intel stack it won't be utter shit.
