The problem with PureOS is: It is a marketing-move and the FSF has gone willing with it. Did they know? Well, unclear until today. Nevertheless Puism is not doing anything "ethical" as this is just their point of sale and marketing. Nothing more: They tell something with buzzwords around their devices. In fact those devices are not that bad for sure, but also not that good as they promised.

I wonder to myself if Purism is the type of company that if they thought they could get away with it, they would remove all blobs, but neglect to mention to their customers that the hardware couldn't boot because of this.

By get away with it, I mean legally...
