that's nice to know for us laptop users.
If I might add my two cents on firmware, I love the way Debian installer scan your
hardware, identifies just what drivers you really need and offers to install them (either
from their firmware version or a file you provide on say a USB).
It very neat and minimal, installs a few mb rather than a hundred.
Among the distro I have tried, it's the only one with this approach.
Some say it's best to install all bunch of firmware just in case one changes some
components in the future, but I find this way better, perhaps because I use laptops and
also because one can always install the firmware for the new hardware if the need arises.

Adélie indeed only ships libre software, as mentioned on
There is however the independent "APK Fission" project which aims to
provide software which doesn't adhere to Adélie's license policy. Among
other things, it includes the linux-firmware package with firmware blobs
for common wifi chips and GPUs. You can find it here:
