Sorry the OT, but what about all the drivers (including printer, scanners
and wireless) that works only if a binary firmware in the device memory
(firmware which is not free and which generally can't be even freely 
redistributed) is uploaded before.

I've asked a comment about this some month ago, but I don't have seen
