Questions & answers

libreboot, and blank background?

I never found any writings about this topic online, even though the answer is quite straight forward. So yes, you can have a blank background, and remove the picture from the image file. The documentation on libreboot.org only describes changing the current background, but it's both simple and possible to remove it completely.

What computer do I use?

I currently use a Lenovo Thinkpad T400, running libreboot instead of stock BIOS.
