What I'd do is go to the store with a live CD and boot it on the

If there's no store, you can still return it in the first 14 days
according to EU law.

Yes, I dream of the day when we get rid of that vendor firmware and we
all use coreboot. That'll be a good day.

Looks cool. Especially if I don't want to pay for that windoze license

I'd probably give it a try next time I need new hw. Thanks for the tip!
