my usb controller uses a blob, my cpu uses a blob, my bios is collection of
blobs and my bios-loader is a blob, [...] and my wireless card uses a blob
from debian non-free and then the certification tells me it's all fine except
for the wireless card. Is that really that useful or trustworthy?


"[...]" is were I ommited 5-20 more blobs (TPM, graphics card, fingerprint reader,
SSD to name 4) on this machine which only needs one blob from Debian non-free :-)
