As I am 69, and on Social Security, as I wait until I win the Lottery to buy a Librem laptop, I thought I would test Pure Linux. My current most used laptop is an Alienware 15 R2 (2016) which apparently Pure does not have a driver for its native wireless adapter, ()Killer Wireless n/a/ac 1535 Wireless Network adapter.) I see that Pure does not even allow for the installation of a driver for a non-freeware Wireless driver.
I would guess I could more easily acquire a Wireless Dongle to plug into the USB which has free software to install on Pure. Any Suggestions?
I notice that other versions of Linux OS’s claim to have protection against the Intel processors security flaws. As Pure is intended to work on a Librem which is not supposed to have that problem: Does Pure OS have the same protection against Intel Security issues? Or do the designers of Pure OS feel these protections do not work? OR Can we as users modify Pure OS with those security flaw protections?
What am I missing in my understanding of this issue? Other options?
