  • @AvinashRedy I know it's Debian based and that the vast majority of its source code is released. But even Debian has binary blobs, I think? Or does Debian use the "Linux Libre" kernel? – Revetahw May 6 '16 at 4:48
  • yes it include non-free firmware – Mongrel May 6 '16 at 4:56
  • @AvinashRedy If you can find a source for that, then you could post it as an answer. – Revetahw May 6 '16 at 4:58

Quote from the link:

Binary firmware blobs from the Debian non-free archive are installed when no good Free Software alternative exists.
