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 https://review.coreboot.org/#/q/status:mergbranch:master 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.
