Back in April, System76 released the Lemur Pro laptop and one of the highlights was that it pulled in a lot more open source. It seems those clever engineers aren't stopping there.
System76 have their own fork of Coreboot, an open source replacement for the usual proprietary BIOS (firmware) found in most devices. They've continued working on it and now a System76 engineer, Jeremy Soller, has mentioned on Twitter that their fork now supports NVIDIA graphics in hybrid mode, and that NVIDIA laptops from System76 with both their System76 Open Firmware and their System76 Open Source Embedded Controller are "inevitable". Soller also shared this picture of it running:
Keeping in mind that's Soller's personal account and not a statement of anything confirmed upcoming, it's still quite an exciting idea for more hardware options.
Wonderful to see all the fantastic work System76 are doing together. They just recently launched the Serval WS laptop, powered by 3rd gen Ryzen too which looks like quite the monster power-house.
