I see that reddit post from 2 years ago referred to a lot, and I know this is 
(for some reason) a very emotional topic.  However it doesn't seem to 
correspond to what I see when I dig under the surface, which is the purism guys 
merging changes into coreboot (eg 
topic:purism/librem13ed+project:coreboot+purism) and what I see on my own 
laptop, which is that it is SeaBios + coreboot .  I doubt it is perfect, but it 
is way better than a Dell.

If I look at https://puri.sm/faq/do-librem-devices-support-coreboot/ it says 
that 13v2 and 15v3 (what I have) come with coreboot pre-installed and for 
earlier versions they have instructions to update to coreboot.
