Description Christopher Waid 2015-10-28 07:07:27 UTC
ThinkPenguin specializes in supporting free software operating systems via one of the largest hardware catalogs in the world. We stock a wide array of computers, peripherals, and accessories. What sets us apart is our devotion to improving hardware support for free software operating systems and ensuring that hardware can be properly and natively supported by the FreeBSD community. 

We restrict our catalog to hardware for which the sources are readily available under appropriate free software licenses. This ensures hardware can be properly supported "out of the box", and that there are no obstacles to fixing bugs, adding features, or risk of losing support down the road.

From computers and printers to any and every type of network card imaginable. However we have a lot more than this so come check us out. We even have dial-up modems, parallel port cards, and other types of hardware you probably didn't know still existed.

In addition to all this we're determined to include compatibility information for which specific versions of FreeBSD are supported "out of the box". We also maintain stocks of hardware for older releases of FreeBSD that are generally not readily available anywhere else. If you find a product lacking specific compatibility information for FreeBSD we'd encourage you to contact support for further details. There is generally speaking a very high chance it'll work already despite the not being listed- and even if not there is still a good chance support will eventually be added to FreeBSD at some later date.

We also maintain warehouses in Europe and the United States so that the majority of users will find parts arrive in a timely fashion.
