Dear Alpine Linux,

I'm very tempted to use your OS. Before starting, as I'm not an
experienced user, may I kindly ask you some help on those questions:

- Is your OS compatible with a laptop LENOVO THINKPAD R400
(64bits, Type: 7443)?

- If not, what parts should be changed?

- Can I install your OS from Libreboot (free BIOS)?

- Do you plan to get the agreement of the Free Software Foundation for
your OS? (

- As your OS seems independant, is it compatible with other common
softwares? Firefox, Tor, Skype, Tox, LibreOffice, Enigmail, KeepassX,...

I already thank you for your consideration and wish you all the best!

- M.G
