Yes, but that's the easy claim to make these days.

The pertinent question is: Do they support Linux *without binary blobs*,
such as found in Trisquel or gNewSense or Debian with only free
software, out of the box?

That's the question I know has been answered thousands of times by
others for specified hardware configurations, and am hoping that
knowledge doesn't need to be discovered yet again in my case.

Thanks, I will if I can actually get their attention; when I've bought
from them in the past they've been insanely busy :-)
