Please also consider adding to the giving guide! UK
based Libreboot seller. is, re-branded. I decided I wanted a new
name. literally redirects the the new site. I made a series
of changes to the way the company operates, to improve the efficiency of
the service.

I, Leah Rowe, am the company's owner and operator. I recently
re-launched my business, on November 10th, 2020.

I am also the founder of the Libreboot project, and if you buy a laptop
from, you are directly funding the Libreboot project! I
use profits from sales to fund the project; something new I'm looking
into for the new year is also paying developers already within the
project, where previously they were volunteers. Andrew Robbins, one of
the people who does a lot of the work in Libreboot right now, is
currently working with me as we speak, to get ar arrangement sorted out
(he will also be helping with RetroFreedom sales by setting up laptops
for American customers, in the new year, since he lives in USA).

I sell Libreboot X200, Libreboot T400 and Libreboot X200 Tablet laptops.

The FSF were promoting my company on RYF but removed me when I went
offline; I emailed FSF recently, asking if I could be added to RYF again
(for the newly re-branded site) and also added onto the Giving Guide.

Since you've published it I guess not :)

Unless maybe it could be amended?

FYI sales have been going pretty steady since the re-launch and I've
been shipping a lot of laptops. I provide an efficient service, which
you can read about here:


I guess my timing wasn't ideal, given FSF has launched the Giving Guide
around the time. Probably should have launched earlier.

Alas, we live in a year of hindsight named 2020. Nonetheless, please
consider me! I am a huge supporter of the FSF and always donate
generously to it, on most years.

Leah Rowe,
Company director.
