Don’t buy System76 hardware and expect to get firmware updates from the LVFS

Re: https://firmwaresecurity.com/2018/01/29/linux-oems-support-fwupd-org/

This is a good example of how vendors have vendor-centric tools. Windows Update supports updating firmware, but most Windows OEMs don’t use it. LVFS supports updating firmware on Linux, but most Linux OEMs don’t use it. Sad for users. It seems a bit worse now that UEFI supposedly has a common interface to update firmware, there’s still a problem with UEFI firmware updates. 😦

tl;dr: Don’t buy System76 hardware and expect to get firmware updates from the LVFS
