Debian indeed does not distribute the BIOS ... _but_ whoever sells a
computer with Debian pre-installed most certainly does distribute the
BIOS.  That is what we are talking about; please try to read threads
before replying to them.

I was adressing the potential 'linking' with the bios from the standpoint of Debian.

Regardless the whole concept is non-sensical. Next somebody will talk about the linking between the Kernel and the non-free firmware in a harddrive. Ot the linking between all applications running on a transmeta processor and its non-free IA-32 simulator (or would that be emulator?).
