Dell joins Linux Vendor Firmware Service

Richard Hughes has a new blog post on Dell joining Linux Vendor Firmware Service (LVFS).

Dell has a poll about the service, asking it’s users which models to target next, which Linux distros they use, etc. If you have a Dell system, please be sure to check out the survey.

So, I guess I need to check fwupd.org before buying a new Linux system, to see if the vendor supports firmware updates or  not. Hmm, I wish fwupd.org had a list of supported OEMs/IHVs: if it does, I missed it, I’ll have to just watch Richard’s blog for new OEM announcements, I guess.
