Does this product require proprietary software to run?


Does this product send data or connect to remote services NOT on the local network? Or to its manufacturer?


Can this product work with a fully-free operating system?

Yes. Any of the GNU/Linux distributions listed on the FSF website will work just fine.

What parts of the product (if any) contain proprietary software?

The Intel Management Engine (ME) is still present on the BIOS chip. But it has been modified using me_cleaner “with the final purpose of reducing its ability to interact with the system”.
