Stallman inc. and although one of our main interests is to aid FOSS, we

relevant for some exotic hardware; infact, it will become more and more
popular. And keep in mind that today, hardly any computer will work
completely without non-free software (or do _you_ have the source for
your mainboard's BIOS?).

It isn't impossible.
Just make sure to start with all the newest hardware, and the non-free will phase-out as the hardware does.
