Not too bad...

Code: Select all
russel@NUC-BR:~$ vrms

               Contrib packages installed on NUC-BR

torbrowser-launcher                 helps download and run the Tor Browser Bundle

  1 contrib packages, 0.1% of 1591 installed packages.

Clean bill of health here! I just purchased a new (refurbed) desktop and did my research to make sure all the hardware was FOSS compatible.

...perhaps on some, or with intel video. Since I don't even have vrms installed I checked, not needed my intel E5.
